    Default When a good bit of British Engineering makes my day



    Hi there All,

    recently I bought some parts to allow me to use a 1.25" binoviewer
    with my PST, so I was somewhat disappointed to find that the binoviewer
    thread was a different size and pitch to the adaptor thread.

    Anyhow, searching through the astronomy equipment small ads, I found
    AstroParts. A quick measure up and a drawing later I sent the idea off to
    them
    and, bingo, a few weeks later the adaptor was made.
    Brian Brooks is a very helpful chap - good workmanship too!

    With the good weather, today, I've now tested the set up and it works! -
    nice
    to see the Sun in Stereo / almost 3-D.

    If anyone wants to see a picture of the adaptor rig, contact me off-group as
    the
    image is 70+K. I'm happy to supply a few more details about thread sizes
    too,
    if anyone wants to go down the same route.

    regards
    Robert

    Yes, I'll second that
    - Brian came to my rescue about a year ago when a very well known company
    was unable to supply me with a focusing mechanism (despite advertising it
    etc.) correctly capable of taking my 2" widefield eyepiece.
    And for me, he's local.
