Hey guys, the dark nights are soon returning here in Denmark! (The major downside of living at 57 latitude) And I am going to be buy a small upgrade, the Skywatcher 150PDS Newtonian. I am going to use it both visually and for astrophotography, hence this version. I do already have the T-ring for my Nikon and a T-adapter, BUT, I wanna know if there is an adapter that provides a better grip on the t-adapter, that is low-profile and fits the Skywatcher?
Something like the Baader click-lock? I've always been scared of the telescope dropping my DSLR, when it hangs in weird positions, and would rather eliminate that fear.
The different adapter sizes and threads confuse the hell out of me though, so I'd rather ask here on what you'd think I need. I have both a 2-inch and a 1.25inch t-adapter, but as I've heard, using the 2-inch should solve vignetting issues, so I might go for a 2-inch locking adapter. (So far I've been using the 1.25-inch, as I needed a barlow to gain focus with my current 130mm celestron newtonian.
