    Cool. I got a 900mm telescope for Christmas. Probably not up to the quality of your one though. :mrgreen: It's got Barlow "PL 6.5mm and PL 25mm Eyepieces". Means little to me at the moment. I've always wanted a telescope but never really thought I'd get one. This'll be my first.

    Any tips for mounting the camera? I think I'll practice with putting my camera on a tripod next to it for now. :mrgreen: Later on I'll get proper adaptors.

    Wish I could use the thing. It's been cloud every night since I got it. :meh:

    What make/model scope is it? If it has rings around the tube one of them will be threaded and possibly have a 1/4" stud on it to mount your camera!:thumbup:

    Does your Barlow have a thread on the end that you put the eyepeices in? If so all you should need is a T2 mount to suit your camera & you just thread that onto the Barlow without the eyepeice (lens projection) which will give you a 900mm lens! :lol:

    Got a shot of Saturn on my mobile phone but I don't have a clue how to get it onto the computer! :lol: (looks OK on the crappy mobile screen though!)

    Any suggestions on getting images from an O2 X1b to a PC please? :D
