Just a fantastic shot of Plato. That is my goal is to show the craterlets. I digiscope with an LX3 and Celestron f-5 Dob. Also a 6 inch R-C. Now have a Pro 9000 ordered. Did you use it in Prime or A-focal mode? I guess the lens unscrews. How do you view output during use? What is the approx. physical size of the sensor? Do you track during shots? Wow, thanks X 6.

Hi,
thanks. I use pro 9000 at prime focus.


The stock front lense of pro 9000 cannot be taken out by unscrewing. You have to remove the housing, unsoldering the two lead contacts and repack it back. You can see the clear instruction at Gary Honis website.


You may start by using your afocal route by your lx3. But you may need to take several shots and combine them to reduce noise and improving craterlets details.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
