Back Focus

4 weeks ago today i had a stroke spent 3 days in the hosp.
everything seems ok but it did effect my eyes to a certain point.
My problem is i don't trust my eye sight anymore when focusing my camera
with the eye viewer
i wear glasses
when i focus with the LCD everything looks sharp.
can i adjust the Back Focus adjustments with the LCD

i dont recommend it. The LCD wont show you critical focus on the star chart.
At least hook it up to a large monitor or TV with video or component in if you dont have a true video monitor.

Joseph, sorry to hear about your stroke. What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger. Be stronger.

As far as setting your backfocus, this video of Paolo's will help you greatly - even if you only have your LCD to judge it by. Watch it and judge for yourself.

Hope it helps
