I agree it's a good scope and you will really enjoy it. As for the dslr body question you will need a T adapter with a 1.25" or 2" nosepiece to fit your camera.

Great choice, it's a fabulous scope, I've loved mine for the past 4 months, and have seen many wonderful sights through it, you wont be disappointed.

I have only just parted with mine for a 200P and it's a big beast :)

Clear skies and happy viewing

Great choice and glad you went for brand new in the end. The binos are a good choice too but you'll need an adaptor for a camera tripod. I have the same ones and suggest you find Jupiter with it's moons in the early hours - it's a fascinating sight. To see the banding - train the scope on it and it's even more amazing. You might want to add an RA motor at some stage so you can track in a single plane (means less twiddling with the knobs).

Looking forward to hearing how you get on with it :rolleyes:
