    As far as the squiggles go, the advice everyone else has given you is a good place to start looking. As far as improving the image, I think all of the glass could be an issue. Have you tried shooting wider field targets without using the 2x adapter, like star fields or large galaxies like M31. You're really pushing the limits of resolution with the 2x adapter especially on a camera lens.

    I see 3 squiggles exactly alike in the picture. Is it possible there is a reflection in the light path?
    Witty words go here.
