    Default product idea !

    one of the most frustrating things i find is dealing with
    drilling / attaching / aligning , mirror and dichro mounts

    precision drilling aint my thing

    Im surprised no one has came up with a cheap mounting rail with
    multiple 3 axis mounts , drill two holes for the rail and job done

    most peoples mounts are i think typically in a row within
    10-15cm of each other

    Jeez throw in the dichros in it as a kit and job done , all in one each
    to fit package

    ok heres where i find such a thing IS available but i bet it costs
    a exorbitant fortune ? I said CHEAP

    Oh those are gorgeous but expensive , but with the mounts x 4 , the optic carriers x 4 + rail it gets expensive , OK if your building an OPSL system :-)

    Ok , i think i can visualize how that might work , however , what mounts could it work with
    lot of research would need to be done to check things would all tie together etc

    My original question /point was how surprised i am no-one has done the research and packaged
    it all together ... i can see now the "easily mounted rail solution" has been available from newport / thorlabs
    etc but their prices are aimed at industrial/university/research markets and at a rough calculation to do an RGB
    setup using their rail , rail mounts , dichro mounts , mirror mounts you are easily
    looking at upwards of 200gbp ( $300) , plus then the cost of mirrors and dichros

    Yes their way of bouncing the beams about are gorgeous , exquisitely finished and no doubt ROCK solid in operation
    but considering the drop in prices of dpss / diodes etc , steering the beams currently seems expensive from these
    all in one sources , and even at that they have so many variations it would still be hard to know what to buy

    So i go back to original assertion , im surprised no one has taken the pain and work out of this
    and are selling a "package", of rail , mounts , dichros,mirror , maybe they will now ... :-)

    i will be watching :-)
