Piggyback mount for DSLR

5 posts in this topic

Hi all

Im hoping to buy a DSLR soon and would like to piggyback it on a Bresser 70 mm scope. I will also attach it with a T adaptor although I guess the mount is probably not sturdy enough to achieve much.

Does anyone know how best to piggyback mount the DSLR to a 70 mm scope? I was thinking using a tube ring but wondered if that would be enough to take the weight? Cant find a 70 mm ring only 90 mm. Perhaps 2 x tube rings with a dovetail and quick release? Anyone know of the right kit for the job rather than making it myself?

Cheers

Sam

Thanks

Aha....So use the LCD as a guide for manual tracking rather than the scope?

I think the mount is equivalent to an EQ2 or perhaps 3. Not heavy I know but all i can afford at the mo. Rather than using a regular camera tripod, Im hoping to use it to manually track.
