Very nice image Miguel.

Where is your filter mounted? I ask as I have a 6300 and I can't mount a filter with my set up- my filters are 1.25"

I have the filter mounted on the 2” nosepiece witch is mounted on the T-ring adaptor attached to the camera.

Yes, 2”. 

I have no issues with focus, the nosepiece is mounted straight in the visual back of the Maksutov.

Thanks Miguel. Looks like I will have to buy some 2" filters then.

Swoop1, 

what about this

IMG_7387.thumb.JPG.6ae5196af8f0606163116c6be51584e1.JPG

This is how i do it, the difference with the 1,25" nosepiece is minimal.

Is it also a Mak you're using ?

      So I'm looking for the best grab and go planetary viewing (and maybe some DSOs) telescope that is relatively cheap (below 500$) that will also support some Astrophotography. I know the SkyMax 127 is a Maksutov and therefore has a high F number, but I'm okay with that because I'll just pop on a 0.5x focal reducer to bring it down to F/6 (still a bit high though.) With said Grab and Go I'm interested in viewing Saturn and Jupiter with high detail. What do you recommend?
       
      Clear skies,
      Leon.
      Edit: I need one that'll fit into the Sky Watcher EQ5.

      Posting in this forum after too long!
      One of the first attempts at taking photos of the moon.
      All photos taken using skywatcher 90mm refractor with eq2 mount, Nikon DSLR and 2x Barlow here and there.
      No exposure.
      Basic editing in cellphone.
      Thank you! Suggestions highly appreciated!

      Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount
