Answer:
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, … see more 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) see less 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.

Answer:
You can see planets fairly well. I was able to see Jupiter (the colored bands and the moons orbiting) the first night I tried. Sine the scope comes with 2 eye pieces it'd be worth getting at least a 2x Barlow lens which doubles the magnification. There are also eye piece sets but I've not yet tried any of them yet.

The timing has been bad for me to catch the rings of Saturn. Also I was able to clearly see the M42 nebulae with very good detail. You can see the moon is very very good detail since it's so close to us. It may help to get a lunar filter. see less You can see planets fairly well.

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!

Answer:
I think a refractor is your best choice for the moon and planets, a good reflector for deep space objects. Both types will work though.

Answer:
I'm afraid I only use 35mm film so I'm uncertain. I do find, however, that when Earth is sturdy, tripod is sturdy, and I am sturdy.
