Explore Scientific ED102 Tilt

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

I've been messing around trying to get the spacing correct between my TS photoline 0.79x corrector and 1600mm, now that it's better I have noticed some tilt. It seems the stars are good in the top left corner and the central part of the frame, but all the other corners not so much. How does one go about adjusting tilt? I've also attached my imaging train - I'm using some push fit adapters, could that be causing it? Or do I just need to adjust the spacing very slightly to negate the tilt?

And yes I have a dovetail bar zip tied onto the finderscope bracket, don't judge me it was for balancing, ūüėā

Very much likely. 

Huge overhang, worst feature of refractors meant to be used with a diagonal. 

Screw connections as much as possible, length worked out with the focuser almost fully retracted.
