Update

Hi guys just thought i would let you all know how i went with setting up camera to scope
First of all thanks Stephen for the lend of your pieces but i didnt realise that the 2inch was too big DOH.. but thank you for your kind gesture
But lucky enough good ol Douggy had one that he dosnt use any more so (thanks Doug) woohooo i was on a winning streak
Butttttttttt......... Yep you guys were right it wouldnt travel down the focuser enough to get focus
So went to plan B first (handy man) Eric got the saw out but thought nah thats too scary LOL So we went shopping in Ballarat bought some longer screws and moved the primary mirror up the tube and whamoooooo it works woohoooo
Keep an eye out in the DIY section i will post some pics and the steps we had to take along the way
So im a happy little imager right now I love my Omega Centaurus pic
Thanks guys

Good to see you're up and running Jen.

I'm still learning how to use my 450D. I think I could achieve the same as you with my collapsible Dob by not extending it all the way.

Thanks Jen. I have a T2 mount for my Nikon B-301 35mm SLR. So I could check out my idea using that. I just need to get motivated to drag my scope out. I haven't had it out all year.
