    Default DIY AutoGuider



    Hi
    Anyone out there built their own auto glider? I've seen a few posts about building circuits for autogliding but not much about what are people using for a guide scope and camera?
    The cheapest I have seen is a skywatcher finder with a toucam webcam.

    As you may have spotted, there are a couple of typos in my post, my scope isnt attached to an aircraft, but would be interesting use for a guider if it was :¬)
