Today I purchased a T-Adapter made from bresser along with a Nikon adapter for my telescope ( MEADE DS-2102MAK )

The T-Adapter was orignaly meant for the ETX-90/125 but fitted just fine and after some focusing it allowed the camera to produce magnificent quality pictures.. Unfortunately I ran the battery dry after an hour or so while trying different combinations of focusing , ISO settings etc. so I didnt take photos of the moon and other planets I wanted tonight.

The weather also didnt help since there are some scattered clouds that pass and spoil the fun :) ..

I managed to capture a good still of Saturn and I am looking forward to Saturday when the so called “super moon” will be visible ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MPmdJ6mGQ4 )
