Firstly the camera is mounted and focused with a bright star. Then, the internal lever-operated mirror is angled at 45 degrees to channel the light path to the eyepiece, which is focused with the fine adjustment. Now the image is centered.
In imaging mode, the mirror is taken out of the light path to direct the light path to the camera.
An adapter to accept cameras with 1.25" nosepieces is available separately.Backfocus
