  7. Ha ha. I have a cheap FR 1.25" and was wondering if it would mark on my 250 flextube..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. as the title asks..... does the focus point change if you use a focal reducer on a newt? TIA Ira

  11. Is this the one you saw? Will that fit the canon adapter? Thanks for all your help James. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Just looked at this pic and it's not threaded at the end like in your pic. So if it's 2" I'll get that nosepiece Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It is threaded but I don't know what diameter it is but will measure it tomorrow and get back to you. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Does this clarify how I'm doing it? I still have the 1.25" nosepiece also but as I said. I struggle to get prime focus with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. To the newt I fit it directly off the camera adapter to the 2" focus tube adapter as it's the only way to get focus in prime mode... Thank you for your very kind offer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. http://www.firstlightoptics.com/light-pollution-reduction/baader-neodymium-filter.html Are these better than the cheaper ones?..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Will do. Cheers everyone Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Ok. So basically..... I'm wasting my time with lp filters on my scope and wide field attempts?... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. The skywatcher star adventurer is a mini tracking mount but the dob is obviously Limited... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. i have a 250 flex tube goto dob and also a SW adventurer that I intend to use for wide field and also with a 80mm travel scope. All connecting to my in modded canon 550d. So I guess the "click" filter is the way to go but.... CLS? Ha? DLS-CCD? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. my heads mashed..... whats the best filter to get for taking images on an unmodded canon 550d?.... i live in a heavily polluted area i've searched and cant make head nor tail. thanks
  22. post anything you find on this thread please. I think this could be the future though.... especially for "grab n go" set ups
  23. Lol. I did Derek. Don't panic. Tested and all works fine. Now for a clear night to see how well it copes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
