So many different explanations on how to do it...so many say to change the aperture good to know...ya I have been using the scope to focus just been having a issue with the camera wanting to auto focus trying to find that setting lol....it says it's in mf but still tries to af and the t ring I got is way to long I ordered the right one...do you know if theres anything else I need? So threads say to add a barlow lens is that true? Some also say to order a focuser attachment?
