In an attempt to brighten up the usual Bank Holiday gloom I've got a (mainly) QHY promotion going:

Worth checking out.

Bern,

That webcam straight-through finder ?  What are the diameters at each end ?  I'm wondering if I can use this on a Meade LX200 finder and my RasPi camera adapter ... ?

Mike,

The MiniGuideScope is around 33mm wide at the front end and 31mm at the back.

It's this that I'd like the size / thread info for please ...

Ahah!

If your finder is the standard dark blue 8 x 50 Meade finder then our SPC finder / guider adapter won't fit by a significant margin, it was designed for use with smaller SkyWatcher finders. The Meade is also tricky in that it's focal plane is very close to the end of the tube IIRC, making it difficult to design a functional adapter.
Either a custom made adapter or replacement with SkyWatcher finder / QHY MiniGuideScope would do the trick, but might not be economic for you.
In that case a bodge of the present EP holder might be called for  ;)
