70mm guige scope.

I just purchased one which was to carry an illuminated reticle on thhe odd occassion.
But Iwondered today if I could use the little polestar camera thru it and maybe produce a long ve stack image to look at..a live view.
I dont know if you would even use it.
I will try the nikon thru it maybe☺

The illuminated reticle wont focus needs to go in only about another 2 mm which is a pity as the main function for this unit was a giant guide scope with illuminates cross hairs.

So far I am using 30mm scope as finder... works, but larger lens would be better.

I already have 1/2 of binocular of that size.. (actually 1/4 - lens and a piece of conical tube)

It will be great finder.. only need to attach the eyepiece and tube to hold it in place.

You don't need the crosshairs for guiding anyways

Actually the main reason I got it was to have something for the occassional peek.
Up here because its so dark you can see a great deal.
Set up and ready to go, ran into power problems but thats ok I planned getting better batteries but I rounded up all the leads and got power to the set up.
Just have to make a cuppa for everyone and casually slip outside☺
If it fails it will all come down and I will do some wide fields but I am very tired from the trip but so far so good.
Have yet to have a peek thru this new scope but I have a 20 mm ep that is in focus did that earlier on the horizon which is a long way off here being on top of a good hill.
Polar aligned before dinner and it is a perfect night the wind has dropped right off and it is super clear.
