Hi All, I had a need for a couple of holders for the handsets on my mount, to take the GoTo Handset and the Skywatcher focuser handset.

 

The mount is a EXOS-2 EQ5 GoTo, and the holders clip tightly onto legs, I put them on the legs just above the spreader plate as you can see in the images.

 

I created the models and have made them available on Tinkercad, if anyone else wants them to tweak to there own rig or other handsets.

You can see both the models in 3D and get the links to them from my blog page at https://www.dave-aul...or-focuser.html

 

Cheers....clear skies!
