Went a bought a Lunt 50THa from Widescreen Centre this morning, as the Sun was out (makes a change when you have a new toy to play with) tried imaging with my guide camera ASI120MM. Due to limited focus range I had to remove the 1.25" eyepiece holder from the diagonal and use a 7mm T2 extension to get focus, minor problem with Newtons rings. I tried for closeup detail with a SW 2x barlow and 2.5x powermate but could not get to focus with either. Does anyone know of a camera / barlow combination that will work with a Lunt 50?
