These two things in hand, you can remove the camera’s lens, mount the combo of T-ring/prime focus adapter in its place, and then mount the camera on your scope by inserting everything into the focuser or screwing the prime focus adapter onto the rear port of an SCT.
Fix #1a: If new batteries didn’t work, try pressing and holding the Menu, Function, Function Set, or OK button while turning the camera on. This along with Fix #1c and #2 sometimes work for lens errors that occur from batteries wearing down while the lens was extended.
So after changing the batteries, removing the memory card, tapping the usb cover, and finally forcing the lens (repeatedly) with minimal success, my co-worker decided to hold the camera flat, lens up, about 6 inches above the floor, and dropped it. Miraculous results, it worked and continues to work!
Engage that, and the camera will take a dark frame after each exposure and automatically subtract it. Yes, that means an imaging run will take twice as long as it otherwise would—30-minutes of subs will take an hour to complete—but I think the results are just better.
