Here's the cheapest, fastest device yet for aligning any fork-mounted scope with a solar cell holder that is larger than the main tube diameter. Zero-cost, but irreplacible, and you already own it: your eye. Directions are in the photo. With my ETX90-RA, I can aim it so the sun is within a few arc-minutes of being centered with the original Meade 26mm Plossl, in about 30 seconds. Dan Prall
