Hi guys, is there any bracket or tube needed to attach DSLR to the telescope? I've search the forum and come across this photo.

You can go and have a look at THIS PLACE, they are located at the Singapore Science Center beside the Omnimax Theatre. They have quite a lot of accessories, you may be able to find one that suits you.

But be warned, NOT CHEAP.

There are three parts :

1. You need the camera adapter to the telescope.

2. You need the t-thread adapter to the camera and the camera adapter.

3. You need to see if your telescope allows you to focus into infinity with the camera adapter. If not, then you will need a Barlows :D.


But then if you are using a SGT or a MCT scope, then you will probably need only a Camera --> M42 thread adapter :D

So..... the morale of the story is ..... what telescope are you using? :D .... Since you are using Minolta ...... hehehehe ...... I happen to have all the necessary items ;D....... if the telescope is not too heavy, we can try together :D
