A colleague, with three years experience of digiscoping using cool-pix cameras, wishes to convert to a digital SLR. Having used a film SLR camera early on he is inclined to think that the results would be good. Does anyone have experience in the use of such an equipment combination?  A major problem is the weight of the Canon 300D and the strain it would exert on the screw thread inside the lens mount to which it would be attached to the telescope. He is prepared to do the preparatory work himself but would seek to avoid repeating the trials of others. If you wish to contact him directly you could do so at
