Daytime focus
« on: October 03, 2019, 11:25:26 AM »
Is it possible to focus the camera during the day by using an object about 1 mile away. My camera is mounted on a Skywatcher EVO guide  50. I have tried xovering the objective with tinfoil with a pinhole bit cant get an image. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance

Hello,

There is no problem running any of our cameras in the daytime but you might need to stop the telescope down a bit to reduce the light input. Start the camera running at its minimum exposure.

Best regards
