Quote:So what if I move the mirror up as much as I can and nothing changes? What could be the next step? And it is a shorty Barlow.
Quote:Ok, apparently I did not solve the problem entirely. What about a negative profile eyepiece adapter? I haven't seen any reviews on it and I don't see on the picture of it how it would clamp or hold the eyepiece in. Anybody got any info on this product?http://www.scopestuff.com/ss_npea.htmStash
Quote:So how does the eyepiece stay in the adapter without sliding out? Or is this something I would have to get for every eyepiece? I'm very interested in this product!! It might just solve my problem!! Stash
