I used to do a little bit of hobby film photragraphy and have enjoyed messing around with some of the digital point and shoot cameras. My ancient mainstay camera is an old Minolta SRT-102 and I have really enjoyed taking pics with it...nothing highly advanced or automatic. I felt like I had pretty good control of the photography and could manipulate shutter speed and f stop to get the desired effects. I know that all of this can be accomplished with the digital SLRs on their manual settings. The question that I have involves connecting the camera to a fixed aperture lens. I have a Celestron 90 cm telescope (f-11) that I bought a t-mount so that it would fit my old Minolta and other than having to guess/diddle with the shutter speed to get my shot, I enjoyed some of the photos that I have taken. Since there's a pretty good time lag between snapping the shot and viewing the results using film, I didn't use it too much but with the instant review of digital, I think that I would enjoy using this lens even more. I am trying to find an affordable (<$800 or so) camera kit that comes with at least 2 lenses and that I can also mate up with my long lens. Can I solicit some sound advice from the group?
