- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsCan this be connected to a camera for astrophotography or a computer? if so, what accessory do i need for this? thanks.Question by: Christian on Aug 19, 2015 4:28:00 AMThere is no way to connect this telescope to a computer, as it unfortunately does not have motors with encoders or any way to add the same to this mount. The telescope itself appears to have a T-thread mount where a camera can be attached, but without a heavier duty EQ mount with accurate motorized tracking the only target you may be able to photograph would be the moon, and the mount would have to be GoTo (Advanced VX or larger mount) to connect to a computer. Please contact us if you have questions about astrophotography.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Aug 19, 2015 10:05:00 AMHey there, What should I expect to see with this telescope? e.g, moons of Jupiter, Rings of Saturn, nebulae? CheersQuestion by: Showbags on Jun 22, 2014 11:25:44 AMThis telescope will definitely show you both the moons of Jupiter as well as the rings on Saturn. You can also see some of the cloud belts that Jupiter has as well as the bands on Saturn.
You can also see the polar ice caps on Mars (When it's close) as well as hundreds of craters on the moon. You can see nebulae but because of the aperture of this telescope, you will not be able to see much detail on them except on the brightest ones like the Orion Nebula. This telescope can also show you thousands or open star clusters which are very numerous throughout the night sky so you will definitely have a lot to see with this telescope!Answer by: Roderick (Admin) on Jun 23, 2014 1:40:11 PM
