First, thanks to everyone on these forums for the assistance in helping me learn this new hobby.
I recently purchased a Evostar 72ED APO Pro which I eventually will be using for astrophotography and visual but have a question related to focusing the scope.
Yesterday I was able to get the scope out for the first time and found that I am unable to properly focus on stars or planets as the focus does not move back far enough.
My setup was the following: 72ED with a 2" to 1.25" adapter to a 1.25" standard star diagonal and a 32mm eyepiece. With the focus all the way out I could ALMOST get perfect focus, if the focus was able to move just a little more it would work (same thing happen when connecting my D5300 to the scope). I did pull the star diagonal out as far as I could.
My research shows that I need to add an adapter (move the star diagonal further from the focuser) or use a filed flattener.
If I want to use the scope for visual, what is the best method or adapter that will allow me to focus the scope (move the star diagonal further from the focuser)? I have seen adapters for cameras but I don't see adapters for star diagonals.
Again, thanks for the help.
