Subject: Astrophotography with an ETX90 (old model, does not have a goto pad) Sent: Wednesday, January 5, 2005 14:07:31 From: Jim Giordani (email@example.com) I am trying to hook up a Nikon N75 to my ETX90 with the t adapter and a T to T telescope variable telextender. I have tried hooking it up with only the t adapter and with the variable telextender with my 26 mm eyepiece and I could not see anything out of the camera's eyepiece. I also tried using it during the day and could hardly see anything out of the camera. I checked to make sure that the flip mirror control knob was in the right position and the cap was off of the scope. I was thinking of getting the basic eyepiece adapter or the variable projection eyepiece adapter. Any suggestions. I am attaching a picture of the adapter that I have. Thanks Jim GiordaniMike here: I'm not familiar with the N75. If it has a removable lens you should get an image in the camera viewfinder. You can read about some camera adapters on the Accessory Reviews: Astrophotography page. Perhaps something there or on the Helpful Information: Astrophotography page will help.
