DSLR and filters new
      #5523605 - 11/16/12 11:10 PM

Hello.

I use a Cannon DSLR attached to my reflector scope where the eyepiece would go(Prime Focus?). If I want to use filters while snapping pics, what type do I use? I can't use an eyepiece filter because I'm not using an eyepiece.
Confused.

Thanks

You can use an eos clip in filter. These filters are mounted in the body cavity.

I use an Orion field flattener on my scope which doesn't have threads for filters. To get around this I flocked the inside of the focuser barrel so I can slide in an eyepiece barrel and it wills stay put. This way I can mount filters on eyepiece barrels (without actual eyepiece of course) and just slide them in in front of the field flattener.

Is that a plain nose piece or a reducer-flattener on your 60Da?

How is your dslr going into the eyepiece holder? I'm assuming you're using a t-adapter, and the t-adapter is held in the eyepiece holder? I use a t-adapter that has rings on the inside so I can use filters attached to the t-adapter. I have an Orion SkyGlow filter that is always attached to my t-adapter, which then attaches into the scope eyepiece holder.
