i wanted to go with ES cuz a friend has them and i got to look thriough them and thought they looked good, but i dont have anything to compare them to ..
i started with a 1.25"..6.6 and a 20mm eyepieces... it will focus with 6.6 but not with the barlow under the eyepiece. theoretically i should get close to 139x , so with the barlow, its still below maximum useful magnification..
it needs more in focus...
right now im using the
M63 WO camera rotator
with a WO M63 to 2" behind it..
then a 2" ES diagonal
then a WO 2" to 1.25" rotolock on the eyepiece side of the diagonal
so that stack is to thick i think...
if i remove the rotolock and just hold the 6.6mm/2x barlow stack just about 5-10mm lower in the diagonal it will come to focus..
so...if remove the rotator and M54 to 2"adaptor stack and just go with an M63 to 2" visual back, this will remove 20mm from the stack, is that usually the way this would be remedied..
or by using a thinner 2"to1.25" adaptor on the eyepiece side of the diagonal instead of the rotolock
or is it possible that i will need to do both of the above..
it possible that what i recieved with the OTA was just not setup for visual, but setup for imaging..
