The best I've found.
on October 28, 2010
It is possible to capture nice pictures of the moon by just holding your point and shoot camera up to a telescope eyepiece. It is not easy though. It takes a lot of work, time, patience, and luck. I wanted more.
I looked around for a camera bracket. This was the best one I could find. It is versatile and sturdy. It is not perfect, however. It still takes a bit of practice to perfectly line the camera up with the lens.
I am glad that I purchased my bracket. I use it often with my wife's small Nikon Coolpix. I am not sure it is enough, however. I may still make the jump and order a T ring adaptor that allows telescopes to be coupled with a DSLR camera.
If you use a compact digital camera, get the holder.
If you use a DSLR, use an adapter to couple the scope and camera.
