Although I am annoyed by a small number of design short-comings found in my CEM25-EC, overall I do like it.

 

The upcoming meteor shower highlights on of those annoyances. I would like to take the mount, a DSLR camera and scope  to a dark site without dragging along a laptop.  My current polar method involves using the Polemaster.  I intend to acquire an iPolar, but it too requires a computer.  I would like to have a right angle alignment viewer since I'm too fat and old to stand on my head to do a manual polar alignment.

 

I have a right angle viewer with my Mach1gto that sometimes use when I don't need a precise polar alignment.  I would like a similar option for the CEM25.

 

I'm wondering if someone has designed and 3D printed something.

 

Thanks

Raymond

Happened to see this on Dark Frame's website, and it mentions something about an adapter for the CEM25:

Thank you.  I'll contact them. Importing can be fun.
