Hi there

Only just joined too!

Looks like a great community and forum - no doubt we'll be using it a lot over the coming months (and years!).

I've got 2 kids (7 & 5) and I'm looking forward to have them catching the bug too - God knows I would have loved to have done something like stargazing with my Dad!

Best luck and wishes

Steve

Hello Stevie.

I started reading your post and just had to read it all, most enjoyable.

In sure that with the good nature and wealth of experience of the members here you will get some great advice.

Hi and a warm welcome to SGL. 

If you are using a Canon you need to download from your starter disc, EOS. This manages the photographic routines (which can be automated) and can give you live view via a laptop or PC.

You will also need a T-ring and T-adapter to attach your DSLR to the scope - take the lens off and then put the adapter straight onto the camera body.

Good luck and Happy Stargazing.
