The camera I use is a fairly cheap security camera which happens to have a lot of features perfect for astrophotography. I use a c-mount to t-thread adapter and then a t-thread to 1.25" adapter to mount it directly into the telescope. Assuming your scope can use the 1.25" standard eyepieces, a similar setup could work for you too.
(AC419, 19th entry down on the page by my count):
If your scope uses the smaller japanese standard eyepieces (.965") you can use the first adapter on the last link to take the 1.25" adapter down to .965" If that's the case though I can't guarantee the telescope will be able to reach focus back to the camera, especially if it's a refractor.

That could be the term I was looking for. I remember a discovery piece on a new telescope that was being build and that they said it would be better than hubble because there were 2 identical ones. They use both to get a single image therefore cancelling most local distorsions afaik. That probably only works for deeper objects that aren't moving so fast but I was thinking that could modern tracking / computer technology over come that?
