Getting started


Recommended Posts


I have spent much time looking around trying to gather all the info I need, there is so much info I'm a little lost in the sea of info. I wonder if anyone can help me out with the basics.

I have a skywatcher skyliner 250px dob and a canon eos 450d.

I realise my mount is far from ideal for photography, but it's what I have right now. At some point I will get a heavy duty eq mount, but not for a while yet. In the mean time I will stick with planets and software to negate most of the limitations.

What I'm trying to get my head around right now is exactly what I need to connect my camera to the scope.

I bought t/t2 mount adapter and then realised I need something else as well, a t2 adapter? Do I need a different focuser for my scope (I read a few people had issues focusing without one that went in further). I have a 2x barlow as well that I would like to use, more adapters?

What about a hyperion eyepiece? I can connect this direct to my camera right? With another adapter? This is afocal imaging?

Sorry for the jumble of information if someone is able to make sense of all this that would be great
