I use a 2x power mate but attached it to a Baader Steeltrack focuser. If you are not using a barlow then I do not think that the distance is an issue. I had many issues finding the target but ended up in putting a Altair MG60 Guidescope with an ASI290MM attached and then adjusted the scope rings so that the centre of the image from the guidescope matched the centre image of the Edge 8 HD. Then I could use Stellarium and NINA to position the mount via the Guidescope and then I would do my focusing once I was on the target.
