Postby Michaela Shaw » Wed Jul 05, 2017 6:18 pm

Hi.
I've been Given a Tasco luminova Telescope And would Love to set up my Nikon 3000 DSLR camera Up to it.

I was wondering if all adapters fitted all telescopes or would need to get a specific one?
Any Information and advise is gratefully received. :] x

Thank you.
Michaela. x

Check the size (diameter) of eyepiece holder in the scope.
They come in three (popular) sizes 0.965", 1.25" and 2"
You can measure your eyepiece to confirm.

Buy an adaptor for your camera fitting to a T2 Mount and then a second adaptor from T2 to the barrel diameter of your eyepiece holder. They usually come as a pair, eg. Canon EF to 1.25"
