I am interested in making up a seeing gage for EAA that will help me decide if it is worth setting up based on what I am trying to do. Too often the forecast lets me down. F2 or slower? Galaxies or nebulas?
so concept is this. Some kind of a finder scope. Connected to a camera like 462 MC ideally, small and compact or I get out a bigger one worst case. Finder to cam to my mini PC. Some simple fixed stand.
Point it directly overhead, take a quick measure and see if worth it at all to set up.
What do you all think?
the only component I don’t have is a finder scope / small scope that has sufficient quality for FWM measurement. One option perhaps is to get a small refractor that could do double duty over time for observing??
