Subject: ETX-60 T-Ring Adapter Sent: Monday, August 4, 2008 16:38:48 From: Ron Balch (firstname.lastname@example.org) I ran across your ETX site in my search for a T-Ring Adapter. I have the ETX-60, it is the first telescope i've ever had so please forgive me if I ask something dumb or something. :) After I figure out how to align the scope and be able to actually find planets, andromeda, nebula, etc, I am going to want to try and take some photos of these items. I currently have an Olympus Evolt E-500 DSLR camera. Olympus has adopted this 4/3 system so I don't think any 35mm adapter would work, but I'm not sure and am having trouble finding anything about it, or finding a purpose built adapter for this camera/scope combination. Not sure if you could help or if you know, never hurts to ask. ;) Thank you very much, and I am sure going to be a frequent visitor to your site as I have much to learn. Thanks again.. RonMike here: If you search the ETX Site for "Evolt" you will find one previous article. You might want to read that. What you would likely need is a T-Ring adapter made for your camera (which should be available from any Olympus dealer). The T-RIng adapter then mates to the adapter that is attached to the telescope.
