The 3D printing revolution continues...

 

I am creating a line of ZWO EAF brackets to mount the EAF onto various Celestron SCTs (and I'd be interesting in expanding to other scopes as well).  I recently worked with a customer to make a bracket for an older Celestron C8 orange tube, pictured below.  

 

I am looing for a beta tester to test the bracket for the following scopes:

 

1.  Edge C6/C8/C9.25 or any other scope that has a brass focuser pinion that measures ~13mm in diameter. 

2.  Edge C11/C14 or any other scope that has a brass focuser pinion that measures ~22mm in diameter.

3.  Non Edge C11/C14 or any other scope that has a brass focuser pinion that measures ~23mm in diameter.

 

Please note that these images are of a PROTOTYPE and are not of the actual production model.  There will be some slight changes.  In particular, I will supply M3 set screws/grub screws, rather than the pictured M3 pan head screws.  The coupler fits on the EAF bare slotted pinion and is held in place by a set screw, and the coupler slips around the focuser brass pinion and secured with three M3 set screws.
