I'm currently imaging with an Orion ED80T with a focal length of 480mm. Obviously, trying to image the moon in planetary mode at 5x doesn't give me adequate room to frame the entirety of the moon. That said, is there any way to effectively zoom to something less than 5x and get a better image than if I captured at full scale? The moon is frustratingly small in that FOV, and, after shelling out a lot of cash for the scope plus the necessary accessories for DSO imaging, I'm not really in the market for a tele-extender or a focal reducer, either of which could understandably help with 1x or 5x, respectively.
Can I just zoom in slowly on the live view until the moon is appropriately framed and then grab that?
Thanks in advance!
