Ever since I started imaging deep sky with my DSLR I have been frustrated when trying to find objects in this horrible light pollution. I have tried a few ideas that didn't quite pan out. I have also looked at finders that mount on the camera hot shoe, but I'm not quite sold on the idea, nor am I enthused about spending money right now. I wasn't completely satisfied with mounting the camera using the 1/4"x20 screw that come with the rings, either. Then, this idea hit me. The mounting method is very easy to use and is rock-solid. I attach the camera body to the dovetail bar using an allen head bolt, which I had already modded for use on my GEM. I then mount it to the scope using the wing nuts, and attach the Canon lens. Even if the scope and camera are not perfectly aligned I still get on target easily and see it in the camera display. Ed D DSLR imaging set up. Close up view of the DSLR on the dovetail bar.
