Default Astrophotography question for Pentax film users.....


I am considering using an old Pentax P30 SLR with a Sky-Watcher
Explorer-200. I understand that a will need a T2 mount for the SLR.
The telescope has a 'direct SLR camera connection'.

Do I buy a T2 mount, attach it to the SLR body and the attach the
camera to the telescope?

Where would be the best place to buy a T2 mount fot a Pentax P30?

MT.

No you buy the T2 mount and attach it to the T2 thread on the scope
adapter and leave it there. Your scope then behaves exactly like a fixed
aperture manual Pentax mount lens complete with a red alignment dot.

Second hand from one of MXV, Ffordes or Jessops (or a real photo dealers
junk box). You don't need working aperture linkage or metering for a
scope.
(Should be under 5 - a bit more if you buy a new one)
