    As having the Barlow far out away from the camera will induce different magnification Firecap will log the correct focal length of the scope, you might want to use a lower barlow magnification when having it further away from the cmos/ccd.

    Firecapture also has an adc adjustment feature to alighn the dispersion correction
    i have attached it correctly and also i have leveled it horizontally when its connected to telescope.


    this should be the neutral position for levers ?


    this is the position i kept it all the time because it gives less color shift. levers passing beyond neutral point to other side is giving more and more CA ( or color shift not sure)


    but i think the levers should go to other direction for example like this?


    any ideas what i'm doing wrong

    Fire up fire capture and use the adc tool, you'll sure find out which way to adjust the levers, each lever adjusts a different colour, you may need to adjust forward or back as you've shown in the two images

    i tried it with firecapture tool as well. the best i get is when levers are positioned like on 3rd image but red and blue cycles are not fully overlapping. i think it needs more travel on that side but cannot do more. is it possible to adjust something so i get more lever travel to that side?

    I think the bottom picture is the most likely used direction if i recall

    not having the adc level to the earth's atmosphere can have a problem adjusting the dispersion, ie it doesn't seem to be correcting enough in the right direction.

    are you using the 10'' newt on a eq as the one in our profile list ? if so it will be a little more complicated then using a sct on a alt az because it uses a right angle mirror (the secondary), once you have the two levers in neutral position you then have to rotate the adc so those levers run parallel to something you can view in the eyepiece ie the horizon or something horizontally level

    sorry i'm not a guru at this by all means, also once you find the horizontal axis you have a 50-50 chance of the corrector being in the right position ie the levers running parallel to the left or right of the horizon , you'll have to flip (rotate the whole thing) it 180 deg if it doesn't correct too well..

    I don't have a bubble level for my one atm, i was considering of getting one but i'm not too sure if it will do me purpose as i use an eq mount, i've been reading up on finding out the horizon once overhead on a eq, i think some people use a mask on the front of the scope.

    my current go to is that i just rotate the adc over and over until i find the best correction and mark it on the drawtube , you'll know if it's corrected when you see the saturated fringes sitting in each other in firecapture.

    one more thing is that some people for what ever reason/configuration can't get a good correction they actually buy a second adc and pull out one of the prisms and stack it with the other set. i would recommend rotating the adc first

    your images are fine btw, are you imaging at zenith overhead,very little correction is needed there, when i can't be bother adjusting the adc i just what till zenith.

    The adc can be a little frustrating tool sometimes ahahah

    one more note, if you can't correct enough, you might have to put the camera in the barlow and the barlow in the adc, it should give you more travel but might give more optical problems if any at all / aberration /reflections ectt

    yes newt and the eq mount. i think the leveling should be the issue. ill try rotating 180 degrees as well. it may change the directions of levers. i need to read more about this.
    i'm usually imaging within 50 to max 62 degrees, thats the max Jupiter/Saturn gets here at 6 degrees latitude this season. as i read 50-60 range still get considerable atmospheric dispersion.
    thanks for the help again!
