Subject: Mead ETX 90EC and Nikon CoolPix990 Sent: Friday, June 28, 2013 09:03:36 From: Bruce Pluemer (firstname.lastname@example.org) I am looking for an adaptor to put my Nikon CoolPIX990 onto my Meade ETX90EC. I've looked around and am having difficulty finding the correct adaptor. I don't want to order the incorrect one and have to go through the hassle of returning it (not to mention the cost). Can you recommend one? Nikon Coolpix990 Lens spec: 3x Zoom-Nikkor, 8-24mm (35mm  format equivalent to 38-115mm); digital zoom up to 4x If you can help that would be great! I've had this Meade ETX90EC for some years and love it and would love to be able to connect my Nikon. Thank you in advance. BruceMike here: When I had a Coolpix 995, I used the "Digi-T" adapter. It worked great. However, the company that offered it back then is no longer in business. You may be able to find something similar. Or you can use one of the "universal adapters" which hold the camera lens over the eyepiece by using the tripod mounting hole. One such adapter is the Orion SteadyPix Universal Camera Adapter. These will work with lightweight cameras. I reviewed a similar one (no longer available).
Thank you for the information and Fast Reply. Take Care Bruce
