T Adapter Question

Hello,

I have a perhaps silly but very specific question...

A little context - I already have some experience with Astrophotography; I have a Canon EOS 700D along with the kit lens & have just purchased a Samyang 14mm f2.8. I also own a Celstron AstroMaster 114 as well as the Celstron travel scope 70. I also recently got a t-ring for my canon...

Cheap 8Ah Lithium battery

I notice that Lidl (here in the UK) will be selling an 8Ah Lithium (LiFe-Po) car jump start with twin 5V USB ports this Thursday for £40. Hard to tell from the pictures if the 12V output is just on crocodile leads. Might be worth a look!

Battery power

I like gadgets, I don't buy for the sake of buying but when I do I look into things, which is why I have two Pebbles (13200 mAh) , see photo.

I travel a lot as a photographer with Classic Cars Magazine, and rely on backups for charging, phones, batteries for cameras, etc. In fact I carry 2 car batteries in the back with a large inverter.

But having bought the scope I wanted a ...
