$60: https://astronomy-im...all-asi-cameras

 

$230: https://astromechanics.org/ascom.html

 

 

I have the early version of the first item above.  Floppy, didn't like it.

 

I ordered the Astromechanics ASCOM adapter for my ASI071 from Soviet Russia, it arrived 10 minutes ago.  Two good things about this:  you can focus in tiny steps using the lens' stepper motor, and AUTOFOCUS.

 

IIRC these babies need a 2" filter.
