Telescope Meade 2080 connect to PC?

Postby cuabongang on Thu Feb 05, 2009 9:00 pm

Hi, please help newbie with this,

I am going to buy this : Meade-DS-2080
http://www.opticsplanet.com/meade-ds-20 ... 20086.html

and, if I want to connect it to my computer then use the finder software, do I need to buy #506 also, or what I need to order?

And, btw, If I want to use my Nikon D90 camera to take astrophoto with this telescope, what I need to buy, with less money.

And, the last, because I must carry them on the flight, i need to know how much the whole package heavy.

Please help me with the order.
thank you so much.

Hi

Yes, you need the 506 Astrofinder kit to connect to a computer.

You can attach your Nikon to this telescope by adding a t-adapter, such as the 07356, and a t-ring, 93402

Total weight will be approximately 20 pounds
