I have a Canon T3i with the handy articulated LCD screen. I like to take wide-field astro images with just the camera on a tripod
But with the flip out screen, I find it very difficult to find stars that are bright enough to focus on. Even with the 10x view.
Jupiter works great, but not always around. Even Vega is a struggle.
I was considering a right angle viewfinder. That way I could really get my eyeball in there. And the viewing angle would remain comfortable.
Would this be helpful in focusing on a star? Has anyone had any experience with them?
