Question Nikon D80 - Need Tring & TAdaptor

Hi guys,

My wife is loving her introduction to the sky via my scopes and wants to use her D80 to take some photos.

I know I need a Tring & Tadaptor, but is there a certain one i should get for the D80? My knowledge stops at using my Toucam. :-)

Thanks.

You should be able to use any t-adapter. One end of it fits the t-ring, the other end fits into your scope's focuser. Just make sure you get the right diameter for your focuser.

As for the t-ring, one end is specific to your camera, the other end is generic. You will need one to suit the Nikon lens mount. Any reasonable camera store will have them or you can try ebay and other such places.

OK. Thanks for the info. I'll check out some astro online shops first and go from there.

Cheers.
