I have got a Nexstar 6SE goto telescope and now l have brought myself a Nikon D5100 camera.

What l would like to know in the simplist terms is what l need to attach it to my scope. Stage by stage. Part by part and also what eye piece would be ok to use to take pics of the moon etc.

Thanks

Mick

Hi Mick - first thing you need is a T-ring for the camera.This clips on the front just like attaching a camera lens. Then you need a telescope adaptor with a T-thread - these are standard and come in two sizes 1.25" and 2" depending on the size of your focuser tube. I'll get you a couple of links and update here :)

These are examples but you can get them from most telescope retailers :)

It was very relaxing thanks with loads of sleep, food, and fortified wines lol. The only negative thing was lack of clear night sky. Happy New Year to yourself too :)
