Hi Thom,

Nice report. I'm glad you have had a bit of good weather. In West Virginia we have had cloudy skys for a good while. I did get a chance to get out a few times to see the planetary gathering, but more times than not the weather didn't coop.

The other night I had Venus and Mars in the 25mm, it was a wonderful view. A few weeks back I had the Moon and Mars in the same fov of my 40mm.

Like you, I also have a Tasco, a 114mm reflecter. I upgraded the eps to GTO standard plossls, I went with a 9mm, 15mm, 25mm, 40mm, and a shorty barlow from celstron. I still use the sr4mm that came with the scope. I am very satisified.....

Concerning your question, I'm not an expert, but I believe I saw a mount in the Orion catalog called the Steadypix. It is supposed to hold almost any camera up to the eyepiece of any telescope. Listed price is $34.95.
