    You might be able to get a used TAL-1 or a SkyWatcher brand refractor for $500.

    Thanks Ian. Where can I get it? I need to buy an adaptor in order to attach to my camera too, right? How much is that also? I have a Canon EOS5 and digital cam Fujifilm 602Z, can the adaptor connect these 2 cameras with the scope?

    Start looking online, places like Astromart (in the states) and at local clubs etc.

    The EOS will attach via a T-mount adaptor. No idea on the Fujifilm, but from what little I know about digicams and telescopes the adapters are grossly overpriced in most cases.

    I got the t-mount adapter (EOS --> T-mount) from Cathay for about S$20 ........ so I guess should be fine.

    Fujifilm 602Z is a fixed lens SLR Like camera .... so I guess .... no t-mount....


    Also, I wish to ask is this a good piece of equipment?
