Question CAA function

Hi, as I'm a newcomer to serious astrophotography, could some-one outline the function of the CAA (camera angle adjuster) attachment? I have a Takahashi FS-60Q and I'm wondering whether the CAA will be necessary to image the solar eclipse with my Canon 500D. Thanks, David.

Dave , excuse their silence. Welcome to IIS

You don't need the CAA for your application. It's only for reframing your shot without losing focus, it will reorientate an object on your CCD's sensor as you spin it 360deg.

Your little Tak comes with 2" occular holder, just use the 2" T adapter from the canon in that holder.

Good luck!
