Re: No chance of handholding that lens :-)

Hello Mark,

No chance of handholding that lens

Yepp a bit to Heavy...

It interests me how you focus the camera because it seems the mounting tube has no lens with which you could focus.

I Focus with a Knurl on the Telescope.
The Revolver is moveable in all Directions.

When i'm unsure with the Focus i make some Photos more and change the Focus slightly in one Way.

With the S5 Pro it is easy, You can use the 30sec. Live-View at full Resolution to check the correct Focus.

Hello Bob,

Further question..... The "S" series cams are relatively low resolution and not the greatest these days in low light.

Yepp for good high-ISO buy a Nikon D3s or a equal Digital-Camera.

Do you have some higher res cams that you use on the monster? In any case please post some more images from your rig.

No Sorry i have no Nikon D3x or a Canon 5D Mark II.

I have only left my FinePix S2 Pro, because my FinePix S5 Pro was stealing last Mounth.

But i have access to a > 7000mm Coude with a 60cm Diameter "Lens".

So it would no Problem to take some high-res Moon Panorama-Photos some Time with the low-res FinePix S2 Pro, just give me some Time and good Weather...

Regards: Carsten
