Did an experiment to attach the two and finally got an adapter printed.
Huge magnification from the 70-210 zoom slr.

It would be interesting to drop an APO lens on this, looking good.
Cheers,

lol, no, haven't seen the sky in a while, raining right now. Fire Smoke new problem besides the clouds.
First chance I have Il be aiming it up their :)
All 3d printed, many adapters that you can DL and print. Main thing is to use some of my slr lenses and put on my iOptron skytracker. sample pic I think is about 60x.

Thanks!
