Now that is a very strange looking Lichen Ken..very small at 15mm. Great Micro shots. One question...did you buy the camera for the scope or did you have the camera and it worked with the scope (What came first the chicken or the egg) Wink

Originally I had purchased the camera (the DSC-W5) to use on the Axiostar but then ended up getting the 7 mega pixel P-200 and putting it on the Axiostar. Then came along the Meiji which had a photo tube and I just happened to have an eyepiece to fit it. However I could not attach the camera at that time and had to shoot through one of the two eyepieces. So I ordered the SteadyPix adapter from OrionTelescopes and attached the DSC-W5 to the Meiji with it. So, to answer your question, I already had the camera. Very Happy Now ask me what time it is and I will tell you how to build a clock. Laughing

Thanks Doug! Very Happy
