This is a shot of the 620mm fl 80mm OD TMB telescope for astronomical use. The Canon EOS 20DA has a 2" Canon bayonet fitting with a screw in IR blocker, as the DA ie A for astro, has not got an IR blocker so that it is more effective for astro photography. The mount is my own home made alt az on a Cooke, Troughton & Simms surveyors tripod.
