Gina Posted January 6, 2021 Share Posted January 6, 2021 Following 3D printing problems with the triple imaging rig, I've decided to design a totally different dual NB widefield imaging rig. Well, not totally different I guess, it still uses ASI1600MM-Cool cameras, Astrodon 3nm NB filters and vintage film SLR lenses with remote focussing. The difference is that there will only be two cameras etc. and the rotation system will use worm gear drive rather than spur gears. This is a method I've been wanting to try, giving easier to calculate motor steps for each angle. It also allows me to try out worm drive which I've never 3D printed before. Instead of using a single printed camera support panel front and back which failed to print properly, this design uses individual camera brackets attached to a U shaped base part.
