  1. Ok all, Great news, problem solved. I got the Astronomik L1 UV/IR cut filter for it, and it cleaned everything right up. Tried it both in the solar scout with the L1 filter in front of the camera, and also took the quark off and put it on my big scope, the stellarvue sva130t with the L1 filter in front of the quark, and both worked great.
  2. Yea i'm about an hours drive away from their shop in Missouri so i may call them up again and see if i can come by, they said they don't do that normally though as they're only setup for online only.
  3. I've tried everything. I've tried my qhy5iii in the eyepiece holder which allows for greater movement forward and backward, no difference. I've tried my asi 1600mm through a threaded connection, no difference. These are as good of focus as i'm able to get which makes me think i've hit the limits of the little scope, which is ok, i just want detail in the surface like yours. I've adjusted the tuning knob 2 clicks a a time full range left and right. literally at a loss, no idea. I'll call them again, i feel bad i've been calling alot. Their solution was for me to insert a diagonal and eyepiece and see if i can achieve focus, and i did but i think it's just a wider view than the level of focus i'm getting in my images here
  4. I've moved it everywhere. I started off super close, and moved it all the way out to 5 inches back. no difference other than where the closest focus appears in the range of the focuser. When moving the focus ring It goes from being way out of focus, to getting closer to the best being what that photo shows above, then continues to get worse, so to me, that doesn't seem like a back focus issue because the focuser travel is able to go past the best focus
  5. I am having this exact issue, did you come up with a solution?
