DIY Solar Aiming Gizmo

After seeing something similar on line, I built this gizmo out of 1/2″ PVC pipe and cable ties. It should help me align to the Sun by maximizing the bright spot in the middle of the shadow. The bottom tubes keep the top tube aligned with the scope tube.

Better than the toilet paper tube idea
Zip-tie construction
Zip-ties in place
Use an index card to check the aim
It needs to stick out beyond the filter
