Title: Aiming system

Abstract

An aiming system including a first member securable to a device having a point source, a second member selectably rotatable about a first axis relative to the first member, a third member selectably rotatable about a second axis oriented non-parallel to the first axis, and an aiming member having a third axis. The aiming system including the aiming member connected to the third member. A selectable rotation about each of the first axis and the second axis can be independently performed. During the selectable rotation about each of the first axis and the second axis with the aiming member in a first position, the point source, a point on the first axis, a point on the second axis, a point on the third axis are maintained mutually coincident with each other.
