prime focus with sky watcher explorer 200p?


Recommended Posts

ive been reading some reflector telescopes are unable to reach prime focus with a dslr, the problem being not enough inward travel on the focuser, i have a skywatcher explorer 200p and was wondering if it will be ok with my scope as im getting a dslr camera soon, anyone know anything about this?

I can't speak for the 200P, but the 130P has a similar problem. I've been looking and found that moving the mirror up the tube a little apparently helps. I've not done it yet but I am planning to move my mirror up the tube by putting in some longer collimation screws.

There are couple of threads on here talking about longer collimation screws. http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/10503-going-to-mod-my-skywatcher-130p/ and http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/184528-six-spring-mirror-mod/
