Focusing for photography

Postby rclarke80 » Mon Oct 03, 2016 10:24 pm

Hi folks,

Finally got my 200p set up the other night and alignment went better than expected so I stuck the dslr on to try and then realised focusing was impossible to get bang on as I couldn't see via live view nor the eyepiece to focus correctly.

Is there any tips or is it a matter of trial and error then marking the spot for future use?

Kind regards,

Rich.
