Ran across this project in Kickstarter - funny thing is I was in the middle of fabricating just this sort of thing to hold my iPhone on a scope.

Check out astroclip at:

And yes I am backing the project.

Not a bad idea. For a small light wieght scope it wouldnt wiegh it down like a full blown DSLR camera.

Love the idea! I've got a 4-1/2" reflector scope, and I've just bought a Nikon P500 camera. I just wish I could find something similar to hook it up to the scope ...... :-(
