Added album Polar alignment with a laser pointer #photo-notice
MAIN@ESPMC-Eight.groups.io Notification <MAIN@...>
Alberto Rivas Sendra added the album Polar alignment with a laser pointer: To avoid be looking through the mount hole, quite problematic for me due my health, I'm developing a laser pointer tool to fix and remove in order to align the mount to the polar star. At the moment is a proptotype but I would like to change plastic by aluminium pieces.
