Lens / iPhone holder mismatch?
Posted 26 September 2020 - 06:52 AM
I currently have an Orion Starblast 6 connected with an Orion Shorty Barlow 2x, and an ES52 6.5mm lens.
I have been playing around with imaging, but only seem to get quite yellowish images. Earlier, I was wondering whether my Barlow was the weak link and was wondering whether to upgrade to a TV x3 Barlow (what do you think?)
Today, I had a different idea.. I am wondering if I have a problem in the interface between my ES52 6.5mm lens and my Orion Steadypix Quick phone holder. This phone holder has a small aperture (approx 10mm). I was wondering whether light was being blocked from the ES52 lens and affecting the images.
Has anyone seen this issue or thought about it? If so, did anyone widen the hole by maybe drilling it to open it up?
Would be very interested in your expert views!
Clear skies, Andrew

Could be several things ~ Smoke from current fires, low altitude (planets).
Did you visually look and seem then better than in the pics?

The only other thing that I am curious about is the use of UV/IR cur filters, and whether that can reduce the color effects. Any thoughts?
