These printed parts hold binoculars onto a wood frame mounted on a telescope equatorial mount for safely observing the sun. Pointed at the sun, the binoculars project the image of the sun onto a screen which can be viewed and photographed. I use a digital camera with manual setting and GoPro 5 for time-lapse imagery.
