- Good sugestion about the longer adapter, Laurent.
Remember though that with the WO dielectric, you don't need a second 2"
extender. I ordered one to use it with my ccd camera.

- There is a very low cost solution for WO :
They already have a longer tube ; the one used to build the 2" barlow
; selling it with no lens just as an extender should be costless for
them and usefull for us.
Just an idea .....

- Hello all,
I've been having a blast and getting good results shooting long
exposure (5 min and a bit more..) wide field astrophotos with my ZS80.
However, there are a few objects I'd like to tackle and boost the
magnification just a bit. Trouble is, I can't seem to reach focus with
anything in my bag of tricks. I've tried a 2x barlow, and a Rini
Optics 40mmm eyepiece with a t-thread. No luck. Any ideas? (That
won't cost a fortune..?)
