Daylight Test for ZWO ASI120MC


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to set up and get my ZWO ASI120MC to work.

My setup is as follows:

Scope>Diagonal>Barlow>Eyepiece>ZWO Camera

Having recorded a video of an object, noticed the centre of the image is OK but around the centre the image gets blurry and a bit out focus. 

Is that because there's no field flattener installed so far?. Or it might be something else?

I assume you are attempting solar system imaging.  It is best to use your ZWO camera without the eyepiece in your imaging train.  Aim for a f/ of 4 to 5 times your pixel size so somewhere around f/15 to 20.  That looks like your ED 80 focuser so a 2x Barlow is ideal.  Introduce the camera directly into the Barlow lens.  However, the scope's focal length is not sufficiently long enough for good planetary imaging.  Imaging the Moon will be very good though.
