    The polar illuminator adapter...

    This adapter compensates for a lack in the Star-Adventurer and Star-Adventurer Mini mounts.

    Indeed, the illuminator provided with the mount is usable when no instrument is attached thereto.
    The alignment is likely to be significantly affected when mounting the "L"-bracket + counter-weight + camera.
    Unfortunately, once the "L" bracket mounted, it is not possible to put the polar illuminator in the axis of the polar scope.

    This is why I designed and 3Dprinted this adapter that fits into the slot of the "L"-bracket and that is positioned in the center of the viewfinder.
    The illuminator is then placed in the adapter. The cap can also be placed to close the adapter.

    Declination setting circle...

    On one side : graduations sticked on the rotating-setting ring.
    The disc is inserted on the Kodak screw of the declination ring with downward coordinates.
    This new version is removable
    (the disc isn't sticked on the axis).
    The overall thickness of the disc is around 2 mm.

    When the disc is in place, you can rotate the coordinate ring. The ring is slightly tightened and stays in position.
    Don't forget to stick the marker on the body of the declination axis, in front of the declination setting circle.

    You can fix your telescope or telephoto lens to the declination axis, as you usually do.

    The precision setting scale allows an accuracy of 0.5° (beyond if you have good eyes...).

    - 1 precision scale, ready to stick on the DEC axis's body.
    The L-bracket isn't included

    The declination setting circle rotates as you rotate the declination axis.
    Once a refecence object is pointed, you can rotate the declination ring to set its declination coordinate.

    The metal latitude blocking lever...

    Si vous possédez une monture Star-Adventurer,
    vous êtes certainement confrontés à des problèmes de serrage
    et de blocage en latitude à cause de la faiblesse du
    levier en plastique d'origine.
    Voici la solution : un levier de remplacement en métal.

    If you own a Star-Adventurer mount, you may have encountered
    tightening and latitude locking problems, due to the weakness of
    the original plastic lever.
    Here is the solution : a replacing metal lever.

     

    2016-10-29 : Star Adventurer - Levier de blocage en latitude / Latitude locking lever 2016-10-29 : Star Adventurer - Levier de blocage en latitude / Latitude locking lever

    A gauche : le levier de remplacement en métal.

    A droite : le levier d'origine en plastique.

    Le levier en métal est plus long et plus rigide.

    Left : replacing metal  lever.

    Right : original plastic lever.

    The metal lever is longer and more rigid.

    2016-10-29 : Star Adventurer - Levier de blocage en latitude / Latitude locking lever 2016-10-29 : Star Adventurer - Levier de blocage en latitude / Latitude locking lever

    Ici, le levier de remplacement en métal :

    - l'écrou M6 est en acier,

    - le levier est en aluminium.

    Here, the metal replacing lever :

    - the M6 nut is made of steel,

    - the lever is made of aluminium.

    En haut : le levier de remplacement démonté.

    En bas : comparaison des deux leviers démontés.

    Les dents de l'écrou du levier d'origine offrent peu de prise
    et présentent déjà des signes d'usure dès la première utilisation.

    L'écrou en métal du levier de remplacement en métal est
    beaucoup plus résistant. Les dents du levier en métal sont
    plus résistantes.

    Le levier en métal est plus long que le levier original en plastique.
    Il permet un meilleur serrage et un blocage total en latitude.

    Left : dismounted replacing lever.

    Right : comparison between original and replacing levers.

    The teeth of the original lever's nut offer few grip and already show wear signs from the first use.

    The metal nut of the replacing lever is much more resistant. The teeth of the metal lever are more resistant as well.

    The metal lever is longer than the original plastic lever.
    It allows a better tightening and a total locking in latitude.
