For the SV501P, know more: New Coming SV501P Refractor Telescope
In this test, we observed the building in the distance (about 300 meters) through the window about 6 meters away from the office desk. Using the SV501P refracting telescope, we placed the SV305 in the focus range of SV501P.
Just like what we wrote in the previous blog, we also have a green screen. There is no clear image. Is the camera defective?

The camera designed with GRGB color. So when you get a green image, don’t be worried, it doesn’t mean the camera is a defective one, just change/adjust AstroDMx Capture's One-Touch white balance button instantly corrects the white balance. Then adjust the focusing knob of SV501P, until you could get a normal image.
