About the Farpoint Bahtinov Focus Mask - Celestron 8"...
Get focused on your astrophotography with the Farpoint Bahtinov Focus Mask!
In 2008, Pavel Bahtinov, a Russian amateur telescope maker and astronomer, published an ingenious new way to easily focus your DSLR camera, webcam or CCD camera for astrophotography. The method is simple, very intuitive, and the device has universally been named after the inventor: The Bahtinov Mask.
Farpoint manufactures this "lifesaving" astrophotography tool out of virtually indestructible ABS plastic, which comes in two major types and in a range of sizes. The Farpoint Bahtinov Focus Mask pictured below top is a general purpose mask designed to fit refractors and Newtonian telescopes. The mask pictured below bottom is designed to fit Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. Both types of mask are available in a range of sizes to cover your imaging needs.
