    Hey guys, I'm about to buy a telescope and I want to take some astrophotos. I have this one in mind, but if you know a better one for the same price range, please let me know:

    National Geographic 9062100

    How and what do I need to adapt my reflex on this telescope?

    This is one area of astrophotography I unfortunately don't have any experience in, as I've never connected a camera to a telescope :(

    Apparently you just need a T or T2 mount.

    I don't have any advice to give you apart from try one of the dedicated astronomy forums
    I do look at the reviews on amazon and some of the member photographs taken using those telescopes to try and judge what is a good telescope. I have long been interested in getting one, but don't really have the space and don't think I'd end up using it much.

    Well I ended ordering the telescope and an adaptator + mount ring. Not sure if this was all I needed but it's already a lot of money :)
