ALPY science camera coupling

Simultaneously focusing the ALPY and maintaining a horizontal spectrum can be fiddly, particularly if the camera is swapped in and out for other duties. To make life easier I use a rotatable dovetail coupling from Teleskop Service

This is slim enough to still allow the ATIK cameras to reach focus and means I can quickly remove and replace the camera, aligning the spectrum horizontally, without losing focus.

Cheers
