I am very new to Astrophotography and do not yet have a computerized setup. I'm using a Canon EOS T8i with a Celestron 8se telescope. I have the T-adapter and have my camera mounted directly to the back of the 8se. When I point the telescope at the full moon, I am too zoomed in to fit the entire moon in the frame. I'm wondering if there is a solution to this or if the two devices just don't work well together for imaging the full moon. This is the T-adapter I'm using and I'm wondering if there is a shorter T-adapter that would give me less zoom (not sure if that even makes sense, I'm a total novice with optics, too). Is there anything else I can do to get more zoomed out?
I was hoping to image the lunar eclipse tomorrow night, but I suspect I'm going to need some sort of different equipment and I'm probably too late to get what I need.
