I like the others have one of these. There are a variety of ways you can use it.

I at the moment choose to strap the camera to the outside of my telescope (piggyback) and take pictures through it normal lense, what people call widefield views. The basis for this for me is my scope doesnt track that good for astrophotos through the lens, long focal length (1.9m) narrow aperture (5") which makes it a slow F15. But with it strapped to the outside and 250mm IS lens , it does great pics.

Again, I am only a beginner, and I have found that the capabilities of the camera outstrip my skills. Yes, one day I will possibly upgrade, but at the moment in this economy, would rather the extra cash in my pocket.
