  10. I am trying to use my Skywatcher Equinox 80 APO PRO Fluorite Refractor with a starndard camera adaptor on a canon 350D with the focus tube put all the way up the object was still abit blurred so i went and borrowed a william optics 2" focus extender tube but that just made it alot worse.Ihave added some pictures of what i am using i am just thinking if a prime focus camera adaptor would do the trick.With the camera adaptors in the picture mine is the bottom one. Thanks Rob

  14. Thanks to the post on SGL for polar alignment for the HEQ5 i think i have sorted it so i had a little test on 2 subjects. The fisrt was a simple star Cappella i only took 1x30secs @ iso800 The other was M31 again only took 1x2mins @ iso800. Still need to get the hang of the playing with photos and the deep sky stacker. Thanks Rob P.s Used was the HEQ5 and the 80mm Equinox....
