    Hi,

    My telescope is a Schmidt-Cassegrain, which is like a big mirror lens. I have an adapter called a T-Piece that takes the place of the eyepiece and has the right bayonet fitting for my Nikon camera body.

    The difficulty with this picture is that I didn't have a remote shutter release, so the long focus introduced a bit of camera shake into the original image. Also the camera is not happy without a lens fitted, so i had to do everything in manual mode.

    Regards,
    Trevor
