NEVER POST YOUR KEY IN ANY PUBLIC FORUM, INCLUDING THE O'TELESCOPE SUPPORT FORUM ::: IF YOU DO YOUR KEY WILL BE DEACTIVATED WITHOUT NOTICE!
Dear Guylain, or anyone at all, has anyone in the Forum had any exposure to the Coronado 40mm PST double stacked 0.5 Ha telescope coupled with a T-3 (1100) or similar Canon camera? My real concern is the focus travel of the scope. Whether or not one can obtain adequate focus with this lash-up. I currently use the T-3 Rebel with a Tele-vue powermate 2.5X on my Celestron 11" fork mounted SCT and a white light filter for solar observation. Along with capture in BYE. This works very well for the most part, but I am trying to go to Hydrogen/alpha for more resolution and detail. I've read reviews of the scope itself, and most of them are very favorable, but none have shown the line-up of scope and camera combo. I would piggyback the PST on my 11" SCT for tracking the Sun and attach the camera to the receiver for the eyepiece using the proper adaptor and T-ring. This would work for mounting, but I worry about focus travel length? If anyone has used this or similar combinations, please let me know if it works or not, perhaps even post a photo or two? Thanks, clear skies, and regards, Dirty Harris Co.USA.
