This message was sent earlier today but has not appeared! So this is
Does anyone have any advice or information on guiding an FLT 110
while using a Canon 20Da.
We tried using a Van Slyke Slider last night but were unable to
reach focus. Someone has suggested trying
a Celestron OAG so I thought I would ask the experts on this group
A little info:
It was first light for the scope and camera combination and we spent
over 2 hours trying every
combination of adapter tube and gizmo we had with us but nothing
would work. We were just about
to give up on the camera when someone picked it up and put it
straight into the back of the
tube and found focus. The pictures taken this way are a bit hit and
miss but some of them were Jaw Droppingly
good. We came to the conclusion that with the Slider in place there
was not enough in-focus travel on the draw tube.
We hope one of the good people on this forum can help.
Thanks in advance
