See everybody? Newtonians make GREAT deep sky cameras!
For Prime Focus, I replaced the stock focuser with a Novak super short helical focuser a long time ago. Novak is gone, but there may be other focusers out there with this low of a profile. Sometimes you can find the Novak focuser on CN Classifieds, S&S, etc. Otherwise, the mirror needs to be moved up the tube.
This picture shows the camera at focus. My old Pentax K1000 film SLR did not need to go in as far.
