Pop that onto the DSLR and away you go!

The 1.25" adaptor with the barrel removed is sufficiently low profile to enable you to reach focus with using a DSLR. Its only when you want to use a 2" MPCC or barlow etc, you will run into issues. I solved mine with a special low profile 2" focuser adaptor that screws DIRECTLY onto the focuser tube and eliminates the skywatcher adaptor completely.

So i have a 6" skywatcher dob. all i need is a canon eos tring to attach my camera if i remove to 1.25" adapter. Is this right, because that will save some cash
