I currently own a ETX125 and was given a lunap planetary imager (LPI) by
mead for free. But I do not have a laptop to connect my scope to.
Therefore I am trying to find a way to connect my digital camera to the
scope. I have an HP PhotoSmart 945 with 56X combined optical and digital
zoom. All the mounts that I see, seem to be for point and shoot cameras,
not digital cameras with very long lenses. Any suggestions as to which
mounts may work? I am a newbie and any help that can be passed along
would be greatfully appreciated.

Thank you,

Mike here: Visit; they have digital camera adapters for many model cameras. Also, see the Helpful Information: Astrophotography on my ETX Site for more info.

Excellent web site.  You helped me make up my mind. 

I've recently purchased an ETX-90EC.  I was wondering I've read
someone's comment on using an HP photosmart 315 with their ETX.  What do
they use to adapt the camera to the ETX?  I have access to a machine
shop and could have one built, but have been unable to find an adapter
for my digicam, either store bought or home-grown.

Any info is greatly appreciated.  Thanks again for the excellent web
site.  Great Work!

Best Regards,

Javier Lopez
Mike here: If the camera has a screw-on filter thread on the lens you can use the Scopetronix Digi-T System. If it doesn't have that but does have a photographic tripod hole in the base then you can use the Scopetronix Digital Camera Adapter. You can read about these and more on the Accessory Reviews: Astrophotography page.
