Photography question

Postby Wulfstan » Mon Jan 04, 2016 11:41 am

I bought a cheap 2nd hand Meade ETX70 so I could have a try at star gazing and for taking photos. I bought an adaptor so that I can attach my Nikon DSLR to the back, but was wondering if there is an adaptor that allows you to connect it to the Barlow lenses?

Yes, it's called a T-mount. Remember, though, that if you start snapping the Moon, your Barlow lens needs to be squeaky clean.

There's a lot you can do with a telescope and DSLR and I've barely scratched the surface.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

Many thanks. I had seen one of those and thought that was what they were used for but couldn't find any proper description :)
