Not too much solar activity last weekend, but it did give me a chance to try out an interference eliminator with my Lunt 60mm pressure tuned scope.  Anyone have suggestions for achieving good focus when using a tilt adapter?  I found that it was not perfect across the entire image.

Lovely captures!

 

It wasn't focus, it was tuning that was off a bit, showing that gradient, and the sweet spot basically.

 

Very best,

Very best,

Thanks, Marty!  I thought maybe it had something to do with the camera sensor at a slight angle with the interference eliminator.  Do you have any suggestions for better tuning, other than visual inspection?
