Camera Mount

BU-TS-785003
Will this telescope mount a 35mm or digital camera onto it?
If this one will not accept a camera, which telescope under $200 will accept one? :?:

Hi

Yes, you can mount an SLR - digital or 35mm - but not a point and shoot camera. (An SLR is a camera that has a removeable lens) You will need:

The basic camera adapter, http://www.opticsplanet.com/bus125telspo.html

To this you add a t-ring for your brand of SLR camera, http://www.opticsplanet.com/meade-t-rings.html
