What am I missing?

Post by Stephanh » Mon May 29, 2017 12:04 am

I tried using a 60ii and a Skris 274M today for the first time.

I had some reflection in a corner of the FOV.
Someone suggested that I use a UV/IR filter threaded on the camera nosepiece. Before ordering one, I thought I should ask the experts on this forum .
Do you think it would work?

Does the reflection rotate with the camera?
If you retune the etalon does it change?
