I wanted to be able to take wide-angle images with the Pictor by attaching standard 35mm camera lenses to it. Rob Wood machined an adapter for me to attach the lenses, and I can now use it for all sorts of images. The above image shows a 28mm lens, and the one below is a 200mm. I attached the finder from an ETX-90 so I could see where I was aiming it.

This is the first version of the adapter.

See the next pages for Version 2 and the final Version 3.
