I've always wanted one to do some amateur astronomy after reading this thread maybe now is a good time to pick one up? I don't really know that much about them. Id like something that is easily portable and easy to set up. Im sure id have to take a drive to a more country part of town to get away from all the city light. One feature I would like to have is to be able to hook my 35mm P-30t pentax SLR camera. The camera support Pentax K and KA mounts. My big question is can this be done for around $200 US? Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.
