Hi guys, I im thinking of picking up the NexImage 10, i have a Nexstar 4se telescope and am planning on using the main eyepiece (the one parallel to the telescope) And im wondering, is there some sort of adaptor that is needed in order to fix it to it and keep it in place? and also, what do you think is the best Barlow is for a neximage 10?

 

Thanks.

A cloudy nights member (who will hopefully chime in here) has a video series on planetary imaging and one on this exact topic! https://youtu.be/4CEJVSkayYw

 

 Also I have the neximage 5 and I’ve taken some great planetary pictures with my C8.  I’m sure you will love it although it is pretty late in the year for the gas giants, you can use it on the moon which is good practice. 

 

 The camera comes with an 1.25” nose piece which will fit into the eyepiece holder. 

 

Oh and welcome to Cloudy Nights!

Hi, thanks for the Welcome! quick question with the eyepiece holder would it stay in the socket or would i need an extra adaptor like one with screws?

Ah ok I didn't realize it wasn't so simple on the 4se. I found these threads, https://www.cloudyni...se-visual-back/ (that thread links to another one) They discuss the correct adapters.

Haha no worries. It wasn’t but a couple years ago I stepped into this ocean of a hobby, and many people here helped me along the way!
