Hi, I have purchased a Meade DS2102 Refractor goto telescope, and I am interested in astrophotography. I have captured a few nice shots of the moon by holding my Nokia N95 camera phone to my 26mm eyepiece, but I want better shots of planets, etc. Could anyone help me, as I am also on a tight budget, I was looking at a Nikon coolpix L11, but dont know if thats suitable, could any one help, especially with the adapter needed to attatch the camera to my telescope. If anyone could help, that would be great, many thanks, Mike Thomas.
