    Hello all, I'm trying to use my 1 v1 attached to my telescope. I have an adaptor to attach to the camera body to the focuser. But the camera is not liking not having feedback from the lens. Have any of you used a manual lens on a Nikon 1? If so, how do you go full manual to use a manual lens. Or is it even possible?

    Thanks
    David

    Nikon1v1moom 003b. Nikon1v1deep 031b. Nikon1v1deep 024b. Daytime image of the moon. Nikon 1V1 attached to my Celestron 9.25"sct on a CGEM mount. in manual shutter, ISO auto(100-3200), Manual exposure mode. one can also do deep sky By increasing the the exposure time or going to bulb mode. Must play more with it. Note ISO HI 1 makes brighter stars baloon. better to use lower ISO and more exposure time.
