I have acquired an SV 105 camera, I use it in the National Geographic 70/900 telescope, I cannot focus on any object. The moon looks like a white sphere without any definition. I use the camera as my primary focus.

Hello, Before connecting the SV105 to your telescope, please focus on the target first by using a normal optic eyepiece. then replace it with the SV105 camera. You should adjust the focus wheel to reach a clear image on the computer screen. Because the SV105 isn't an autofocus camera.

I have acquired an SV 105 camera, I use it in a Russian Mizar Tal-1 reflection telescope, I cannot focus on any object. The moon looks like a white sphere without any definition. I use the camera as my primary focus. Might it not be appropriate for such an old telescope? Thank in advanced.

Thanks for your quick response. It does not seem that this is the problem, I carry out the steps that you tell me. The image in the camera appears excessively large and impossible to focus, even at 0.5 x barlow.

SV105 is a sensor imaging, the sensor is closer to the imaging position, so there will be a certain degree of magnification. It is recommended that you do not add a Focal Reducer, but the first test whether your telescope with SV105 can achieve focus. If you have adjusted the focus mount of your telescope to achieve a relatively clear picture of SV105. After that, please fine-tune the distance between SV105 and your telescope, taking care not to let other lights enter until a clear image appears. If you still have questions, please send your detailed questions to SVBONY's official mailbox, where there will be more detailed solutions.

I have the SVBONY SV105, i use it with my Celestron AstroMaster 70az. The only problem I have is that every time I conect it, the camera gives me a lot of zoom, even when I try to put the minimum zoom Possible in the software. I can’t take a picture of the fully moon. Just in parts because of the zoom. What should I do? I have a MacBook Air 11”, I don’t know if I need an other different program if I’m an iOS user. Please help.

Don't worry. this situation is normal, SV105 is a sensor imaging, the sensor is closer to the imaging position, so there will be a certain degree of magnification. You could choose to add a focal reducer to try.

The Svbony SV105 is an excellent starter lunar/planetary astrocamera. I have had great results!
