I'm trying to image with Lunt 60 DS and can't get enough infocus. I've got a Scopestuff 2" nosepiece on the camera. I'm using a 1200 blocking filter and Agena Astro 1 1/4 to 2" adapter. I've tried a 2x Powermate plus a Denk OCS and still can't quite rack focus in far enough. Any ideas?

Paul - surprised that 2x Powermate did not work. I have read that focus can be achieved with Canon cameras using T ring (aka T mount) on camera and ring connected directly to blocking filter after eyepiece adapter removed.

I don't have the T3i, but a XSi, and I attach it directly to the blocking filter using the T-ring (the blocking filter has threads that fit the T-ring). However, I just barely have enough inward focus, Not sure if the T3i body is larger or deeper.
