It may also be worth doing a bit of research on some of the astronomy websites and fora out there. Just don't forget where we are, that is all! waveysmiley

You could use a telescope with an adaptor as mentioned above, but this really only works for a dSLR where they use the cameras lens mount instead.



Thanks Faolan, I'm planning a trip to Cambrian Cameras in North Wales soon, they sell cameras and telescopes but have all manner of bits and things some second hand, some going back to the Box Brownie. I will be able to get my hands on what I need to buy, I want to know if I can get an appropriate lens and adaptor for my OM kit. I'll take my other digital SLRs with me as well.

Thanks for the advice and info, :) I'll let you know how I go on.

That's the sort of situation that calls for traditional American vigilante action.

Nope, sorry.

I thought from the subject line that you meant using a rifle or other type of firearm. I only thought this since leaving the pub the other night there was some extremely tanked up locals throwing rocks at the moon.

Not attempted photography through a telescope, but, if memory serves me correctly, and I'm talking 20 odd years ago now, there were barlow adaptors that allowed you to connect an SLR (camera to you gunslingers) to your telescope. The whole setup was not particularly cheap and really for those who were extremely passionate about their astronomy. I'd suggest that things are much easier today with digital photography and you may even download your image to the computer in real time as all you'd need is a "camera" connected to the telescope.

I must invest in a telescope one day, eldest son kept his when he left home. Our place is great for stargazing, not too much light pollution in our back yard and precious little (nil) only about a kilometre down the road!
