How do you adjust your diopter?  I keep messing with mine but all my pictures still come out blurry. :(

I'm puzzled why you would use the term " diopter", as it refers to the optical power of a lens.
Perhaps you're thinking of f/stop?
The only other thing may be shutter speed is way to low.
Go ahead and stick a photo in here with as many details as you can.
Remember, this isn't my thread, I'm just more active in it. It's open to everybody.

Aha, you were referring to the viewer part of the SLR component.
The little wheel beside the eyepiece. Now I understand.

There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

What's that collection of gas and dust in the lower part of the photo?

Or is it the reflection off a Mickey D's golden arches?  :lmao:

That's M42, the Orion Nebula.
If you look closely at the far left belt star (Alnitak), the faint glow to its left, is the Flame Nebula.
These were taken with a 100mm f2.8 lens.

Solved a problem getting this iPad to recognize photo file names.
Now things get bad.
Tapping/clicking each image gives a larger one.

One more F-22.  For now, that is.  :-)
They ought to stick a tail hook on seven of these and paint them dark blue.
The resulting flight show would knock your socks off.
