      It's not necessarily such a glamorous hobby, this photography lark, is it! Keep up the great work.

      Very nice! Did you have any trouble, Dave, achieving focus with the Lunt and Canon DSLR. I haven't tried using my Canon with my LS35T yet and am curious if I need anything else besides a normal T-ring adapter.

      It won't focus on a DSLR without attaching a low-profile EOS T-Piece adapter directly to the output of the ERF - and anyway, at Prime Focus the sun looks tiny, so I use a Baader x2.25 Barlow attached to a regular nosepiece, covers a DSLR sensor nicely.
      To fine-tune the focus, I switch to Monochrome - more contrasty in LiveView - then back again for the photo.

      Thanks, Dave. I'm going to order one sometime soon.
