Hi guys,

I just took delivery of the 4x Powermate to use with my C11 and LU075.

Do you use the entire long barrel when imaging, and just insert the camera into the 1.25" adapter at the end?
Or do you remove the top half and then use an adapter etc.?

I keep reading on Televue's HP and elsewhere that the long barrel configuration is for visual use, while the top half is removed for CCD imaging.

Advice here would greatly help.



Hi Robert. I bought the TeleVue T-ring adapter so I could screw the optical portion of the 4x PM directly onto my filter wheel. But if I'm not using the filter wheel then I'll just leave it together and plug a camera into the 1.25" adapter on the end.

Hope this helps
