    my dad just got a meade 1000mm F8 telescope with computerized mount. I have a Tmount adapter for my camera just need to get a t-mount adapter for the telescope. (and figure out how to use it ) :)
     
  3. We have several scopes at the planetarium; someone just donated a Schmidt Cassegrain w/ motorized mount that I'm eager to try out. Thank heaven for rich people who buy stuff for their kids to get bored with.
     
  4. I sold my telescope and astrophotography setup to rose_canyon last year. I miss it, but I just didn't have the time to enjoy it.

    We (spouse & I) have always wanted a telescope .. this was a way to get in without blowing the $$ all at once ..
    we can buy the actual 'tube & optics' next year
    with camping trips coming up & a couple weeks at the family cottage - I'm hoping to get familiar with the set up & get some nice images
