Hi All I'm very new to AP specially to refractors I do not understand how can I get the camera body to be aligned with axis of the OTA if the flatenner and Camera are screwed onto the tube.

If I connect my dslr to the Field flatenner 6AIII using a M48 T mount the camera body is rotated Ina fixed position. Do I need a camera rotator? Otherwise How can I rotate the camera?

Thank you very much for your help

Yes the normal WO Z81 requires a field rotator. Most likely this one but check with WO first to make sure.

Thanks for your advice. That will certainly change everything.
