Gina Posted December 28, 2020 Share Posted December 28, 2020 I'm calling this Dual and Triple Rigs because I plan to make a triple imaging rig with three ASI 1600MM-Cool cameras and Astrodon 3nm filters with three vintage film SLR lenses of very high quality. However, I only have two cameras at present so I shall start with a dual imaging rig but with provision for easy upgrade later.As I mentioned in the DSO Imaging forum, I'm planning a mosaic project covering the Milky Way in NB. This requires that the cameras can be rotated in unison to line up the mosaic panels. My plan is to rotate the cameras using gears and stepper motor controlled by the electronics (using a special INDI driver).The first 3 screenshots show a CAD model of the triple imaging rig. Two of the main assembly and one of the frame or bracket.There are a few problems with 3D printing this frame so I have split it into two with each half individually bolted to the Losmandy type dovetail bar. The next screenshots show a partial assembly on the dovetail bar and one side in the S3D slicer. To show the air ducts on the cameras I have modelled a rectangular hole through the solid representation of the cameras. There should be little resistance to cooling airflow out of the vents. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
