Question about coupling my EPL-6 to my Celestron 8 SE, because of the weight of the OTA, would that negate the effects of shutter shock and would that not be an issue when coupling the camera to that scope?

Also, can you AF effectively with that Panasonic lens on the EPL-6? And is it a heavy combo (like over 3 pounds total?) And have you found a range of shutter speeds with that lens that do not give shutter shock?


On the Celestron I have no idea.

As far as the 100-300 setup, I tried but found that once again holding technique was more influential than shutter speed.  I tried to do some shots with a tripod and remote release, but the balance was so bad I was worried about torquing the lens mount.
