I'm an absolute beginner when it comes to astrophotography. I created a "jig" to house a 0.965 eyepiece and my panasonic g7 lumix.
Tonight I was able to test it out and I could focus in on Jupiter, however I have a few questions about the eyepiece + DSLR config.
There is 2 focusing mechanisms at play here. the telescope focus of the eyepiece, and then the focus of the DSLR to the the eyepiece. I have adapted a helical focus between the DSLR sensor and the eyepiece. This means I can control the focus of the telescope>eyepiece and also the eyepiece > DSLR.
I'm curious as to how these relate to each other and if I have to dial in both in order to get a good image or if I only need to "focus"(excuse the pun) on one of these mechanisms.
Any advice regarding the technical focusing aspects would be appreciated. Cheers
I have also attached my best effort single shot from my experiments this evening. This is unprocessed straight from my DSLR (other than to bring it under 500kb for the attachment rules on CN)
