Yes. You can see Saturn rings. Floor mount
With an adapter of some kind you should be able to, but because of the added weight you will have to balance the telescope again with the camera attached. To use a DSLR you would need a T-Adapter and T-Ring I think. For a normal digital camera with a tripod mounting hole you can use something like a SteadyPix mount, but it is quite heavy and combined with the weight of the camera may be a bit too much for the focuser on the telescope. Also, this scope is a "slow" F/10.1, so it may not be ideal for astrophotography, but I have taken some pics with my phone attached to it and they aren't horrible, but they aren't anything special either (except to me, haha)
I don't know the exact measurement, but I'm 5' 5" and it's taller than me. If you'd like more exact measurements I can measure early next week.
Orion 90 MM Eq. refractor vs. Orion Skyquest Classic Dobsonian: Which telescope would be best? Jan 26, 2011
Well it really depends on what type of area you live in and what you are looking at. If you are in a light polluted city or are trying to see fainter objects then a dobsonian would help. If you want to look at fairly bright objects like planets, moon and terrestrial things then a refractor will be great for that.
it will, though i have not bought the adapter from orion. i think an eye piece camera looks like a better way to go. i would contact orion if i were you, as they are quite helpful. good luck!
Would this scope be a good one to view sea life (such as whales, dolphins, etc.) from the beach or boat? Jan 13, 2014
Yes! Refractors are the only type of telescope that can be used for terrestrial viewing as well as space. Just make sure you get a 90° correct image angle so your images are not upside down. On a boat it will be difficult to use because it zooms so far that the boats movement will make it hard to keep the image still.

No. Not with either of the two lenses that comes with this telescope. Your going to have to spend alot more money if you want to see that far out.
