FLIP FINDER BRACKET
Epsilon’s Flip Finder Bracket has been designed to overcome the limitations of Meade’s ETX telescopes finders. When fitted, the bracket positions the finder away from the telescope and forks allowing the finder and observer to reach all areas of the sky. After use the Flip folds down to allow storage in existing cases. The finder will remain aligned when opened out again and will work using right angled finders, with a small amount of adjustment. Alternatively, the bracket can be left open as a regular finder bracket for permanently mounted telescopes.
Models Models Available Models:
Flip90 for the Meade ETX90/90RA
Flip105 for the Meade ETX105
Flip125 for the Meade ETX125
(The Flip does not include thumbscrews as the existing ETX screws are fitted to the bracket, but Epsilon sells a deluxe model that includes machined Stainless Steel screws with a Delrin plastic knurled cap and nylon tips).

PARALLELOGRAM BINOCULAR MOUNT

Epsilon’s binocular mount is a parallelogram design, which means when lifted up and down to accommodate people of different heights it will remain aimed at the same object, making the mount ideal for group use at clubs and societies. The mount is machined from solid aluminium to provide a rigid support, and rides on nylon pads to give a very smooth motion. All of the parts, with the exception of the counterweight, are made from non-rustable materials with stainless steel screws throughout. The mount can carry small telescopes, as well as binoculars, and comes supplied with a small ‘C’ bracket with both 1.25” plain and threaded holes. Mounts are supplied without tripods or piers but adaptor plates can be made to suit individual requirements. Epsilon is currently developing a pier for this mount.
