Try a photo shop to see if you can get a T-adaptor to fit your camera (this is for SLR cameras without lens attached - the telescope becomes the lens)

But if you mean the 55mm filter threads, ie with the lens still on the camera, then you have the wrong thing. You need instead a contraption that holds the camera in position to take photos through the eyeepiece of the telescope (ie both telescope eyepiece and camera lens remain in place). With non-SLR cameras, that is the way to do it.

Is there an adapter available to attach my Nikon D40 to my Nikon RA11 spotting scope?


Sorry but your out of luck with that combination. Nikon only made SLR adapters for their Fieldscope line of spotters, none for the Sky and Earth series. The camera adapters are very proprietary so you won't be able to use another manufacturer's SLR adapter to solve this one.

The circuit board that holds the batteries for my ETX is corroded and I need a new one. How can I get one?


Is the problem that you left the batteries in the battery compartment? (a no-no, BTW.)

If so, you might get away by cleaning the board--if the circuit traces and components haven't been damaged.

Try mixing a tablespoon of backing soda with a cup of warm water. Using whatever applicator seems appropriate--a Q-tip, or small brush--clean the corrosion from the board with this solution. Wipe and dry thoroughly.

Inspect the board for broken circuit traces and damaged components.

If nothing is obvious, put fresh batteries in and try it--it will work, or it won't.

If it does, congratulations. If it doesn't contact Meade customer support at this link: http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

Good Luck!

NIKON D50 CODE FEE


"F-EE" indicates that the camera cannot take automatic control of the lens' diapraghm. To resolve this, turn the aperture ring on the lens (the one nearest the camera body) to the largest number (probably 22 or 32).

Nikon N 60 has a problem - FEE appears in window and camera will not shoot


I just fixed this problem on my Nikon... It is very frustrating when this happens!
First the issue is on your lens itself. Make sure the ring closest to the body of your camera is set to 22, it should be in red while all the others are white. This will fix your problem!

One of the gears in the Azimuth motor got a flat spot because the worm gear was adjusted too tight. It is a 24 tooth nylon straight gear, very small- only about 1 cm across, but if this gear isn't working...

Yukon yd-100 lens removal for camera fitting seems like thred is broken


When you say lens, did you unscrew the eye piece or the actual lense? because the eyepiece is meant to fit your adaptor for 35mm cameras etc. but the actual front lense should be tightly sealed and thread locked to make your glass (scope) waterproof to some extent and to protect the alignment of the other lenses within your scope. If it is possible your local camera shop may have the ability to re-align and seal your scope, but if not do you have a warranty? and if not even that, if i were you i would align and accraglass your piece back together, it's a last ditch solution that should last for years.
