Re: Polemaster adapter for IEXOS 100 #ExploreScientific
Jerry Hubbell - Explore Scientific VP Engineering
Until we release our mount specific solution for mounting the Polemaster, a workaround might be to get an adapter from ADM (I assume they would offer something) that would mount on your Vixen dovetail plate. That would be the best and most secure place to mount it for an accurate alignment. You would of course make sure the camera is orthogonal with the plate/mount dovetail puck to ensure it is in line with the mounts RA axis. A bit tedious, but doable I think.
