Contrail Spotting Equipment

Post by SilverJET »


I want to try, to do some contrail spotting.
I own a Canon 500D, Skywachter 102/500 refractor telescope.

I have a T-mount for my camera. Now I need to have an adapter that fits my scope.
Under normal circumstances, you'll need an eyepice to see thru the scope with certain magnification.
How does it work when an camera is attached without eyepice. What is the magnification?
Is it also possible to fit the camera with an T-adapter and eyepiece?

I hope someone can answer my questions. Regards!
Best Regards Raymond
