Generally the answer is yes. The telescope takes standard 1.25" eyepieces, which is a must, the real question is what kind of camera do you have?
You could use a universal camera adapter, but they're a real pain to work with and don't produce the best results. I used to use this product to
attach my previous two cameras to my telescope (a 3 megapixel kodak dx4330 and an 8 megapixel sony dsc-f828).
It attaches directly to your eyepieces with set screws, just take the rubber eye cup off first (carefully! They can snap easily). You'll still need
one more part that is specific to your camera, a stepper ring that screws onto the front of your camera and steps down to a standard t-thread size.
Not all cameras have threads on the front though, so it really depends on your exact model of camera. You can find the list of supported cameras and
the second part you'll need here: www.microscope.com...
If your camera's not listed call them and see if they have yours. The list online is not complete.
One more thing, your telescope doesn't seem to have a motor drive system (unless you've added one yourself), so deep space astrophotography won't
be possible, and your camera probably doesn't have a bulb setting anyway. You'll be able to get great shots of the moon though, and probably saturn
and jupiter as well.
