For a dob without tracking, your best bet is afocal imaging.. so leave the lens on! Point it into the eyepiece and shoot away.

You can get camera adapters that hook onto the eyepiece and hold the camera in place. There might be some balance issues with the dob that you will need to overcome but it can be done.
