Canon DSLR 5X and 10X question #47842

Last night, I was testing things with our Canon 450d/XSi and Ekos on Astroberry using the moon and "Live View", and at 1x it worked fine. I shot a movie, brought it into Autostakert! etc. Worked fine though the moon was small, as expected.

I tried the 5x zoom mode, but the sliders didn't appear to do what I needed. It's like my view window was too small, and while I saw a glow of the moon off to the right of the window, I could never bring it into view.

The whole point is to get planetary capture going similar to BackyardEOS.

Thanks very much!
