Are you after taking images through the telescope??? or piggy backing the camera to the scope and doing wide shots of the night sky??? Does the scope have a drive/motor?? Your T ring adaptor will also need the 1.25" adaptor which screws into the T ring, then the piece goes into the scope eyepiece, ie prime focus imaging or planetary shots..........dunno if any of this helps?? Let me know.

Thanks to everyone for your replies.

I am removing the camera lens and attaching the camera to my telescope via the T Ring and Barlow lens then lining up images ( the Moon) through my red dot finder scope.

I have just purchased a Synscan AZ-GOTO mount but have yet to set it up. Not even read the instructions yet (I believe this mount can track an object).

Too many questions so little time.

Like others I would like to take photographs of planets, nebula etc.

The equipment I have is probably up to he job now it's a case of educating the user.
