Mounting hero 5 onto Saxon telescope

I'm interested in a Mount for my hero 5 / Saxon telescope. Does one exist?

Cheers,

Hello @richards2214

 

Thank you for reaching out. Depending on the size, positioning, orientation, and field of view that you would like to capture, you can check out the mounting accessories that we have for a HERO5 Session camera. You can visit this page: https://shop.gopro.com/International/mounts-accessories?compatibility=HERO5%20Session&gp_itemType=Mo...

 

Hope this helps. 

 

Best regards, 

Marius

Re: Mounting hero 5 onto Saxon telescope

Hi Marius,

 

Thanks for teh reply and my apologies for teh delay in responding.

 

I was hoping that there may be an adaptor that replaced the lens cover and allowed the GoPro to mount directly into the telescope eye piece. 

 

I may experiment with mounting a flexi-mount to the side of the telescope and then position the GoPro over the standard eye piece. Will give it a go and let you know if I have success or not. If the pictures are worth posting I will do so.

 

Cheers,

Richard (Tricky :smileyhappy)
