Telescope photography
#1
Has anyone tried using a spotting scope to photograph the moon?
Using an csc should I somehow link the camera lens to the telescope eyepiece or
Remove the eyepiece and the camera lens and mount the camera onto the scope body.
Looking on the Internet,  I can only find the afocal method which requires 2 tripods and aiming the camera lens down the telescope lens. As the subject, the moon, moves the telescope and camera need to  be released aligned. Not easy.
This is best done with a compact using a special mount that clamps onto the telescope lens. 
I don't want to use this method, I want to use my Lumix gx7.
Cheers Mac
