I think about 3 years ago I researched and selected the
Celestron C5 Spotting Scope as the “telescope” that will allow me to take detail pictures of the moon and capture interesting landscapes and other objects. [OBE, see this article.]
Using the C5 for photography couldn’t be easier. The C5 converts from a powerful spotting scope to a high performance 1250mm effective focal length f/10 telephoto lens. To take professional quality images with the C5, simply attach an optional T-Adapter and T-ring for your SLR camera to the rear of the C5 and you’re ready to shoot.
My research [always] includes searching the Internet [especially Flickr] for photos taken by others to assess the functionality of the equipment for the purpose I have in mind.
Anyway, I now have the T-Adapter and T-ring for my Canon EOS 6D thanks to my generous son, Michael, for surprise gifts [THANKS Mike! He reads my wish list.] I received this past weekend. I am set once I have the C5. All photographic equipment is on hold until I purchase my Ford Transit Connect Van. I ordered it 02/01/2016.
All photographic equipment is on hold until I purchase my Ford Transit Connect Van. I ordered it 02/01/2016. To my knowledge, it is built. I have the VIN [04/29] and I have seen the window sticker [05/07]. Next week, I will go to the dealer to see if they have an estimated delivery date. I expect July–5 months after I ordered the van.
So, after the van arrives and I have set it up, I’ll then add items to my photographic kit.
The C5 is at the top of my Amazon.com Wish List. We shall see!
