I needed a relatively easy way to place the iPad and did so with a shelf of sorts–first wood and the Lexan. The Lexan is clear and doesn’t need finishing. Both are from scraps. I completed the project yesterday; but, I did not take pictures until tonight.
With the eclipse over, I will focus on lunar photography with this system. For now, I am using the Canon Connect App to wirelessly connect the iPad to the camera–no more monitor, wires, & batteries. I plan to replace the current App with CamRanger. I was on my want list but canceled it. Now, it is back.
