You can use all the letters for the words on here, you will get a better response if you don't use mobile text typing.... oh! and you don't need bold on either.

Hi davee, it depends on the telescope, but if it has a removeable eyepiece and you can have a tube made with a T-mount adapter - as shown in the video - then ye you'll be able to attach a DSLR. Bear in mind there's no guarentee it will focus properly when attached - sometimes the distances are incorrect. Can you tell us what model telescope you have, and link to a website with information on it?

Thnx 4 ur response Gordie, I was just surfing thro' the net, & came across astro-terrestrial telescopes that could be used in DSLR photography. I shall send u d links of those sites.

At the moment, I own no telescope, but was thinkin about it, cos' i love astronomy... & 2nd, if i can fit it on a DSLR, it would be simply fantastic...

THnx again 4 ur useful advice about the foussing issue !

Hv a nice day.. :!:

Gordie, I 've got one link here.... :)

http://www.galileotelescope.com/

Once u reach d site, on d left side, u hv a variety of options to choose from...select Astro-Terrestrial telescopes(Refracting telesopes).

Next , from the top row, click on the 3rd item from the left.... it reads,
Skyview III - Refracting Telescope for the Experts!!

I came to know compound microscopes are also useful in DSLR photography..

I would greatly appreciate a comparison on the different types of telescopes, regarding their use in DSLR photography....

Brand is not a problem... I just want a piece that suits my needs..

not just for astronomy, but also for terrestrial use....

N do u feel Canon 40D would make a better choice compared to Nikon D80, when it comes to using them along with telescopes ? :roll:

Pardon me if i hv asked questions one too many.... :!:

Thnks again 4 ur patience

Hi davee,

I think you'll get a better response to your questions if you drop the use of bold fonts. It is tantamount to shouting, nobody else does it here on a regular basis and for those members who find reading forum posts difficult there is always the option to change the browser defaults to display larger or clearer text. Thanks.

Bob.

Sure sir, I'll incorporate ur changes.... :)

I knew.. typing in CAPS is tantamount to shouting... but never, bold !

I feel it infuses a nice change in d order, reading one bold n one normal...

But, its k, if its d rule of the land...

After all, You've gotta b a Roman, while ur in Rome ! :wink:

Hi Davee,

Great stuff. Have you had a chance to catch up with posts from our resident astrophotography guru cybermystic? He does some stunning work and, from what I understand, he didn't have to take out a second mortgage to do it. Follow the link above and then follow on to his website. He has also written a book "Making Beautiful Deep-sky Images: Astrophotography with Affordable Equipment and Software" (ISBN-10: 0387713522) which I can recommend (I have a copy). You can pick it up from our affiliate store Amazon UK if it appeals. 8)

Bob.
