Polar illuminator adapter for
Star-Adventurer and Star-Adventurer Mini
Original design : elastic-grip fits even low-quality illuminators !
Thanks to this 3D-printed adapter, you can illuminate
the polar scope of your Star-Adventurer mount and align it,
even with the "L"-bracket in place !
More than 300 mounts improved worldwide !
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.
Glow-in-dark adapter :
Material : PLA
Colour : black, glow-in-dark (green, white at daylight), red.
Specify the type of mount and the color you want (black or green-glow) while ordering.
