This dovetail mounting bracket provides a flexible and secure platform for holding a QSI 500 or 600 Series camera with a camera lens attached and a belt-driven automated focusing system. It is intended to be used with QSI WS models using Canon or Nikon lenses, or with QSI WSG models using Pentax 6x7 lenses. A FeatherTouch focus motor is available with flexible mounting options for focusing any camera lens that has a traditional a helical focuser. The mounting bracket base is a standard Losmandy dovetail plate. It includes to risers to securely hold the QSI camera, plus a sliding bracket to hold the automated focus motor and a separate plate where a red-dot finder can be attached. Works with any QSI camera or DSLR. The QSI camera is positioned such that the connector panel on the bottom of the camera is fully accessible.
The system is available with or without an integrated Starlight instruments Feathertouch focus motor. If you already have a Feathertouch focus motor or a RoboFocus, it can be adapted for use with the QSI Mounting Bracket. Note that the Feathertouch Focus Motor is the motor only, intended to be used with your existing Feathertouch digital kit (purchased separately). A separate motor bracket is available to work with your existing Robofocus system.
The Dovetail Mounting Bracket, along with a QSI camera and camera lens provides a compact and flexible platform for remote imaging. With a compact mount, such as an Astrotrac, you have the ultimate lightweight system for remote imaging, easily packed onboard an airplane.
