    This adapter securely attaches to a T-adapter. The only problem is that with the camera attached, the telescopes does not have its full range of motion due to the camera hitting the mount. This means that you can only image certain targets. It also means that you have to remove the camera while changing targets or your risk ruining the drive motors because the scope is getting stuck. This increases the chance of attracting sensor dust to your camera's sensor because of the number of times where you will have to remove it.

        I got this adapter for an Olympus E-420.Works great....no this is not for some huge aperture scope. It will amaze you though......if you align precise enough, you can take some very well done long exposure shots.

                It works all right, and the few practice pictures I got were good enough, but then when I took my camera off, the problems started. I can't remove it from the telescope! I just keep turning it over and over, and it doesn't budge. It's also stuck to my camera's t-mount, so I'll need to buy another one of those if I want to use my camera on any other telescope. And now with the rings stuck on the back of the scope, there's no way to keep dust and moisture from getting in there. And since it's stuck to the telescope, I can't even return it. Whoever thought to make it out of plastic needs to think again.

                    This accessory allows you to attach a T-Ring adapter to your ETX 70/80 rear port. In other words, you also need to purchase the T-Ring adapter designed for your type of camera.

                    This type of connection, when used with your SLR film camera, does not provide the same magnification that your eye pieces do. Since the image is basically coming straight into your camera there is no way to magnify it. (note: this may not be the case with digital cameras mounted this way).

                    Since the adapter is plastic you need to be careful when tightening. The threads strip very easily and you may find you have a permanent addition to the telescope.

                    This provides a quick and inexpensive way to enter into astrophotography.
