Hi

I'm interested in taking some pictures through my telescope with my 35mm.


I guess i'd start with the moon.

I have a 4.5" reflector, but i don't have any camera adapter pieces.

I was thinking that if I spend money on camera adapters, I'd like them to be compatible with a larger telescope if I decide to go bigger.

What are some good resource pages to figure out what I need?

Ok, I remember now that the eyepiece is a standard fitting, right??

I was just hoping for a good link or advice for buying pentax adapter, or at least help me out with the jargon.

Hi Tardis,

Go look at my website. There are some pointers on doing afocal imaging. That should get you started until you are better eqipped for bigger things.
