This is a completely stock optical tube. I have thought about doing hyperstar imaging with this scope, so I'm wondering how much of an improvement I can get in actual image quality by replacing the focusing mechanism. I have access to a hackerspace with any of the machining tools I could ever want to create a zero image shift mechanism for the primary mirror.
My question is, is it worth going through that trouble to create a zero image shift focusing mechanism for image quality?
I haven't been on Astromart in a long time. Lots of changes in my life with losing my wife, so I'm trying to get back to my roots with the things I love to do. I would love any feedback to give me an idea as to how I should approach this..
It is what it is...
