When you have too much time on your hands.

I finally got my Samyang 135mm to focus with the OAG and filter drawer. I found a guide camera for the OAG that I was able to get it's backfocus short enough to work. I made a couple of adapters and mounted the Starlight Xpress stepper focus motor, it works nicely (no room to spare). The Vixen shoe is for a guide scope, incase I couldn't get the OAG to focus (it focuses). The laser finder is in that shoe, it serves no real purpose, but looks cool for the photo-op. :)

It is mounted on a dovetail plate, but also has in the dovetail plate two 1/4"-20 camera threads for a camera mount or tracker.

My back is on the mend and I may be able to get a mount outside in a month, or so. Than a clear night would also help.
