universal camera jig

Learned from Chas and Eric of "universal adapter" for holding any style of digital camera to the eyepiece of a telescope! This is very cool. Simple, ingenious device. Khan sells 'em.

I think Charles had a Zhumell unit.

Eric says there's a newer model than the one Chas has that offers another direction of movement, in and out, suitable for digital one-touch cameras with non-removable zoom lenses. Gilles and Nicole were very interested to here that...

I'll have to tell Malcolm about it. We could try shooting with his camera again.

I also discovered a unit from Orion.
