Just getting started. Got the first telescope for the family yesterday. Sky-Watcher Explorer 130/900M Newtonian on a EQ2 with tracking motor (no GoTo). I Added a cheap Svbony SV105 USB CCD to the deal but had an idea. Hope I post this in the right forum.
We have this SJCam 4K action cam my oldest stepson wanted but have never really used. We have loads of cameras, me being a photo geek. "Killing" this one for a "higher" purpose would not be a problem. There is 2 ways to do it I think. Detach the cameras optic and make a lathe machined aluminum adapter for use without eye piece or just 3D-print a adapter to use like with a smartphone. Does it make any sense? It would be a 2" LCD eye piece for 2-3 kids to look at at the same time instead of fighting to be the one to watch. It would add features like remote control snap shooting, video recording and via WiFi live streaming. So my questions are:
1. Is this a waste of time project?
2. What way to it is the best?
3. Would any video recorded like this be useful when stacking?
