Focus?


Simon Pepper

Recommended Posts

So I got myself a new camera for a try at imaging lunar and planets but I can’t seem to find the focus point. I have focuser Barlow than camera. I have some M68 extensions and racked the focus all the way in and out. Am I missing something here as I think the OTA doesn’t look right? Thanks

You'll likely have to use some extenders, more so if you're using the Barlow. I'd try it on the moon without the Barlow to start with. With my powermate I use a diagonal and it's quite easy to setup that way.

Thanks Elp I did that in the end anD managed to find focus I think I’ll leave the Barlow out for a while! Are you able to assist with this one? Issue after issue today…
