I decided to let it go, the magnification is too big (even for me ), I think I will stick with the new Crystal Vue 8x zoom giving me a whopping 64x zoom, should be enough.

And only costing arround $ 189,00.

I would like more information on the camera lens adaptor for Tmount lenses. I have an old TeleAstranar 400 mm f6.3 that might be fun to use with my 995.

Hi Rich,

With an SLR or dSLR, you generally use a "T" mount and "T" adapter, but with your 995 what you really need is simply a way to hold the lens on the Nikon in close proximity to the eyepiece on the telescope.

If your eyepiece is removable - such as a 1.25 inch celestial type - then you can either use a mechanical device to couple the Nikon's objective very close to the ocular eypiece on the telescope, or better yet get a specialized eyepiece such as the William Optics DCL-28 or one of several ScopeTronix models which thread to the 28mm filter threads on your camera. If the eyepiece on the telescope is not removable, then you need one of several adapters which screw to the filter threads on the Nikon and clamp over the eyepiece on the telescope.

These are availale from ScopeTronix, EagleEye, London Camera Exchange, etc. Tell me more about your scope and perhaps I can be more specific about what will work best. In any event, you shouldn't need a "T" mount for this purpose.

Best regards,
