question

Is it possible to use this together with celestron off-axis guider in DSLR astrophotography? I saw in some forums that this reducer doesn't have enough back focus to allow it.
Asked by: Mahesh K.
Yes, there are options that will work. However, the Celestron OAG is too thick, you'll need a super thin one and special adapters to obtain the proper back focus.

question

Can I get the full view of tue moon or sun on to cropped frame DSLR such as Canon EOS 70D by using this focal reducer with EdgeHD 8?
Asked by: Mahesh K.
Probably not. Your focal length will be ~1500mm with the reducer. As a side, I have no idea why someone would use it for planetary imaging as you want more magnification, not less for that. Planets are very small and bright. The f10 is not a problem but the small size in your field of view is. Planetary imaging is best performed using a video camera with a very small chip made for the task and stacking the good frames. This is to reduce the effects of the atmospheric seeing at high magnifications. Eyepiece projection is also used when the seeing is good.
