made adapter for finder scope

Made an adapter for the Meade ETX 90. Designed the part, er, parts, with 123D. Produced with a Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer at the Toronto Public Library.

2 piece adapter for ETX 90 finder scope

It will firmly hold a right-angle finder to the small spotting scope atop the ETX main optical tube assembly which in turn will afford more comfortable viewing.


I did not accommodate for the dimples in the right-angle finder plate but those were easily dealt with using the high-speed rotary tool... Otherwise, perfect! It works. Very nice fitment. Wow. Can't wait to try it.
