ZWO asi183mc pro not focusing
Posted 20 September 2020 - 10:49 AM
I'm using it with a skywatcher startravel 102T with 500mm focal length. Mounted on a skywatcher az gti in equatorial mode. Powered by 150w battery inverter. And using an ASiair pro to control everything.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

Assume that you cannot wind the focuser inward sufficently??
In a way makes sense - the 102 Startravel is basically a visual scope and not intended for having a camera attached so there is insuffucent focuser travel provided.
If it were outward travel the solution is add an extension, insufficent inward just cannot be sorted. You cannot remove (sensibly) length of the OTA.
Not all scopes are suited for AP.

Roughly measure 500mm from the 102's objective, that's where the ZWO sensor needs to be.
You'll probably need a spacer, measure with the 102's focuser halfway out.
The sensor is 6.5mm in from the front plate of the ZWO.
