The 200 mm lens was calibrated a few years ago by observation of a filtered Sun diameter at high altitude then confirmed with distant horizontal angle images and standard low altitude Sun observations at the beach seashore from a known GPS position.I don't keep calibrating each time I do DSLR CN. It is a one time calibration for each lens used. The 200 mm is the easiest to calibrate with a single minute of arc per pixel multiplier good through the very narrow field of view. DSLR cameras must be in manual mode for CN calibration and observations. Anything that changes focus from infinite will ruin images for CN purposes.
