Imaging using usb link to laptop

Post by s4eyes »

Can anyone recommend equipment I can use to link my eyepiece to my laptop for viewing and recording images? I have a Skymax 127 AZ GTi which I use the Synscan app for control using my mobile phone. Trying to control the Skymax and take images from the same mobile phone has not been very successful, having to switch apps back and forth. Added to that the Celestron Nex-YZ I've also tried using to take images using my mobile phone is not working well as the camera lens on my mobile doesn't sit flat against the eyepiece. The clamp doesn't fit the eyepieces well. I'd love to image lunar craters using this telescope and am getting pretty frustrated so far. Any advice for a newbie hoping to become an 'improver' would be great thanks.
