The latest in astro cameras. :) I finally got the thing done.
210mm/f4.5 copy lens. Currently no shutter. Lens set to infinity for star trails and meteor shots.
I'm going to have to try building a Packard shutter. Attached files http://f295.f295.org/uploads/astro11_2451.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/astro11_2451.jpg) http://f295.f295.org/uploads/astro111_1055.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/astro111_1055.jpg)

Cool! Now all you need is a clock drive!

Be sure to post results.

I already have a motorized barn door tracker. Another scrap box wonder. LOL

I like the rifle scope for polar axis alignment!
