Dear Stargazers,

I have updated my visual back on my 180 Mak recently (https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/363512-lightweight-visual-back-for-a-180-mak-with-micro-focusing/) and have to report that I am very happy with the micro-focusing option I have now.

Last night I had the chance to test the new setup with my ASI 224 MC camera. The prime focus length when imaging is 2400 mm with an ADC in the light path. Here some sample images:

and first time imaging Mars, getting ready for opposition. I just made one mistake, I removed the ADC, which you can see in the image.

Let me know what you think and hope you enjoy the images.

Clear Skies,

Alex

I've moved this to the imaging section but left a link in the observing section where it was originally posted.

Hope that's OK :smiley:
