smile Hi, I'm De Lorme, Try looking straight threw; If you can.
I do this with the moon and the view is 20% better if not more.
Go to Good Will or Salvation Army and get a Office Chair that
has hieght ajuster. I have two of these. One for when I really need to sit and one where I almost have to stand.

My suggestion would be to cut the tube down.

Not what I would suggest for this telescope (!).

Options? Several makers have auxiliary lenses to bring binoviewers to focus with refractors and reflectors. Check with Denkmeier. A barlow will do it, but you may not want the extra power...
