Hi all,
I know every dSLR brand has its own bajonet, so all of them have its own T mount. But what about T adapters? The have to fit the telescope, but I think not all the telescopes have a 2'' tube, where you have to fit the T adapter. Is that true?
If Im right, I should first have to look at the diameter of the telescope, and then for the T mount the dSLR brand?

Missed this earlier.

You need two parts to mount a DSLR to a scope: typically a T-ring (the bit that goes from camera mount to T-mount) and then an appropriate adapter from the T-mount to scope.

I'd suggest just looking for what is available for the scope model in question, and get the appropriate adapter for that. For example, on my Nexstar 4SE, I can use with the dedicated port on the back with a dedicated adapter from Celestron, or any generic 1.25 inch eyepiece adapter.
