Now that there is a dob with tracking I was wondering if anyone had tried Astrophotography with the Orion XT8g?
I tried with the 12" inch skywatcher version. I had to collapse the tube by 2inch to reach focus.

Bottom line, you can't really use a DSLR due to lack of infocus, but I have found ways to use a 2x barlow and a 5x powermate so worse case scenario is you may have to get the low profile caryford focuser such as the one Orion sells

FoxK, have you tried your SPC900NC or Quickcam 9000?
