I bought one of these adapters (with a clear filter) to keep the camera protected. When connecting it to the Canon I can hear/feel the locking pin getting engaged but to confirm the lock I turned the adapter as if to remove it and it just turns as if not locked in place at all. This of course is no good if the camera is mounted on a scope and a slight knock can dis-engage the camera so easily. Other t-rings I have lock in place as you would expect and have to have the dis-engae button pressed to allow you to twist & remove it. I have received a replacement but this is the same, it's not the same physical one as I have both at present and was due to send the original back if the new one was fine. Have dropped an email over to Baader but until I hear back I wondered if anyone else has had this issue. Steve
I’m coming to astronomy/astrophotography from a wildlife photography background but as a parent of two young children my time during daylight hours is going to be limited for the next decade! I have a Canon 6D (full frame), Canon 650D (APS-C) and some decent L lenses (400mm f5.6 L, 70-200mm f2.8 L IS II plus the 24-105 f4 IS kit lens). So my question is, does it make sense to buy something like the Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro to start with (with perhaps a modestly priced scope for visual observation) and stick to my photography kit for imaging? If I invest in a good astro equatorial mount which I can add a telescope of some variety to, can I directly mount my 400mm f5.6 Canon L lens and take galaxy/nebula images? Is there some big difference between the Wildlife lenses and the refractor telescopes of similar focal length? I assume I would be looking at taking relatively short exposures with that set-up as I wouldn’t have the benefit of autoguiding…? Thanks in advance for your advice.
