Celestron Edge 8"
9/11- Never Forget.
Quote:It comes with a 1.25in visual back, however I have a WO 2in dielectric diagonal that has a portion that uncrews from the body. I wonder if it will screw on to the back of the Edge either with the unscrewed portion or the diagonal portion?

Quote:Sedat- Thanks! I thought I saw a picture of your setup where you were using the stock finder as a guide scope or did I see wrong?

I am using the stock finder as a guider when I shoot with the Hyperstar lens. It works perfectly well for this FL. For other configurations, I am using Lacerta OAG, which is the same thickness of a T-Adaptor and has no flexure at all.Now that I have sold my C11 Edge and purchased a C8 Edge like you, I will modify the finder of the C8 Edge also. C11 Edge was too heavy for me for setting up and tearing down everyday I will pick up my C8 Edge at NEAF in April. Loooong wait for me Glad you received yours very quickly!Clear skies
Quote:I'm very interested in this since I have the same finder. It did not look to me like it would be useable. What modifications if any did you need to make? And is it reversible (can you put the finder back in the original configuration).
Quote:Sedat- I wonder if would still be a good guider even when shooting at 2000mm?
