Prime focus with SkyWatcher Evostar 72ED.


Recommended Posts

Hi,a few days ago I received a email from guys that were supposed to sell me 130PDS,they told me that they don’t have it so i decided to buy SkyWatcher 72ED.

would i be able to achive prime focus with SkyWatcher 72ED and canon 450D? Im going to buy a reducer/corrector for 72ED and a M48 t-ring.

Yes but IMO, better to hold out for the 130.

Yes easy to achieve prime focus with the 72ed and 450d, I used to have this combination before I went to my 600D. I do have an ovl field flattener with mine. Do I just have scope then FF, then the Canon t ring then dslr attached and prime focus achieved. I don't use rotators with mine, I set the dslr to be as you'd look through it normally (like holding it taking a photo normally)
