Hey all. I have had a meade etx 70 scope for a few years and recently wanted to connect my Canon Rebel eos t5 to it for imaging  and I want to make sure that I select the correct one can I get some information on what to buy. Thanks in advance

I'm afraid the ETX 70 is more suited to visual observing than astrophotography. It is possible to conect the camera by using an EOS adapter for EF lens mount. You would also need an M48 to a 1.25" reducer as the Meade only has a 1.25" focuser, and not a 2" one.
