Hario, you're right. I confused afocal with eyepiece projection. Afocal is where you hold your camera up to the eyepiece. Eyepiece projection is where you take the lens off of your camera and hold it up to the eyepiece.

I tried eyepiece projection and it was too dark. I gave up and went the Barlow route. If you can adjust the camera to eyepiece distance you might get something to work.

Look at the pictures on AstroBin and see what other people use. Here is one where someone used both a 2x AND a 3x Barlow.

This may not be the correct location to post this question, but I'll through it out there. First of all my wife and I just bought our first telescope..it's a orion xt8i which is awesome, I also purchased the Neximage 5 to use with my hp laptop which is running windows 7. The software iCap v2.2 that came with it will not install correctly, so I tried Sharpcap and Handyavi. Both programs shut down as soon as I select the Neximage 5. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
