Borg 60ED astrograph question

11 Sep, 2019 21:51
I purchased a Borg 60 ED this week which arrived today. I`ve had the brief opportunity to try it out with my Canon 450D tonight. On close inspection of the frames i have coma. Listed below is the advert with the parts i have been sold. Can someone please tell me how to put it together in the correct order? Does the reducer cover APSC size chips?  smile
I have included a link to the ad with pics if that helps?

The reducer distance to the camera sensor is critical…  must double check !

Please post a pic showing the coma !

Hi Luis
Will upload tomorrow. Hopefully you can help. Pics on advert show how the scope is put together atm. Is this correct? I do have extra parts that came with it as part of the package. I have the Multi-reducer 0.7XDGT (7870) set to 350. Is this correct?
