Hello everyone, I've used this forum plenty of times to improve my astrophotography but this is my first time posting! So first of all thank you very much.
I have an Orion 80ED, Celestron AVX mount, Orion mini deluxe autoguider package and a modified Canon 3Ti. I use my equipment mostly for DSO. I have also taken pictures of the moon and I was thinking maybe I could improve these using a barlow between my scope and my DSLR. My question is, since the Orion 80ED is only 600mm (FL), a 2x or 3x barlow still wont provide enough magnification to photograph much detail of the moon. Is it possible to use a 5x barlow on a scope like mine, to take pictures of the moon? Will the image be clear enough?
I ask this because I know the use of barlow for magnification has its limits, specially with small apertures and focal lengh like mines. So will this be a problem even with a bright moon and doing astrophotography? Is this a good idea? If not, how can I estimate or calculate the max barlow I should use before the image is worthless?
Thank you very much for your help.
