I have been given a Celestron 8" Schmidt telescope and would like to take photos of night sky, planets, moon, nebula etc. I have a Canon 70D eos camera would like to know what is best to use the camera with said telescope. Adapters and would it be best to shoot strait thru the back or to use the 90 degree eye piece mount. Also the Telescope came with a front mount solar filter have already used it to view sun.
This is the setup you will need if you have a 1.25" eyepiece for your 90* Diagonal.
If you use a 2" On eBay search 2" Canon T adapter.
I too, like Jim, recommend using the Diagonal. Otherwise you will be on you knees all night.
