Piggyback Plate for Camera Rotator

Originally this plate was intended to be used with Takahashi portable mount.

tak1218aAdding several holes, it turns the proper piggyback plate for a camera rotator too. Here is 2nd prototype.

The plate allows to set a guide scope or some other accessories at the top. I don’t think a guide scope is needed for short focal length lens. But a guide scope makes dithering. That should be very effective. Also generally it’s not easy to find out how to set a guide scope with telephoto lens. This gives us the solution too. Probably small c-mount lens & 1.25″ camera must be the best match for this setup. I will try to do later on.

A plate is expected to be commercially available early of next month.
