It seems to get the thumbs up here as well (apart from those old Nikon die hards )

What accessories will I need to attach a 40D to a telescope?
[ I have an ED80 and a Celestron C8]
Hi I've just bought a 40D but haven't really had the skies to give it an astro workout yet!
You'll need an EOS T-Ring to attach the Camera directly to the C8, to do prime focus stuff with the ED80 you might want to get a 2" Prime focus adapter to attach the T-Ring +Camera to like the pic below.
Hope that helps
