I am looking at the option of a telescope plus adapters for long range photography of aircraft, above 30,000 ft etc

Can anyone on here recommend a particular scope, but not too expensive for magnification I would require? Also which adapters etc I would need to work with the Nikon D60?

Thanks again

Can't recommend a particular scope, but you'll be looking for something with a focal length of around 1000mm to 1500mm.

This photo was taken with a 1200mm f5.9 telescope which will be something like the skyquest XT8

and is £300, or the similar Skywatcher Skyliner 200


for £269


or £299

Then you'll need the Nikon adapter whch will probably be around £20
