Using my Skymax 150 for first time with 1200D - just went for focus which I think I got.


Not sure why the star is not showing a full circle - is there a problem with my scope?

Hi

I don't know anything about Maks, I'm afraid but I believe they don't have focus tube coming in from the side like Newts do so it can't be that!
