  1. So how exactly does the focus reducer work, i have the t ring on the camera then u screw the t adaptor with barlow into that, and that goes where the eyepiece should be, where does the focal reducer fit in to that?
  2. Truth be told last night i was using a friends celestron 114 powerseeker, i did have an inkling his finderscope wasnt 100% but as its a similar scope to my 130m which is accuratly aligned and i was at his house i happened to have my camera to hand, as for shutter speeds i tried 1/4000 when i was getting some pretty awsome shots of the moon.

Obviously i would normally be trying to get lo

I have the t ring and barlow adapter and have been somewhat successful with taking pictures of the moon. The way i understand it is i have to use the barlow as there is not enough inward travel on the focuser to achieve prime focus. Heres where my problem is I know its not ideal to use a barlow to take pictures of dso`s but when i set my canon to the Manual in order to control the shutter speed the aperture seems to be locked at 00, when i try to change the setting i get a message saying that i cant wit
