Jupiter, using the NexImage 5 camera.

I would like to get the size of the disk just a little larger, but not enough to use a barlow/Powermate. Would an extension tube be enough to get 1.5 or 1.75x?

Thanks!

Richard, maybe the good folks in the solar system imaging forum can help.

Thanks for all the comments. BTW, the scope was purchased from a gentleman here on Cloudy Nights. Just one more wonderful thing this board does for astronomy!
