Get a telescope. A great many are available in all sorts of sizes and shapes and types.

I used to use Canon film bodies on an 8" f/8 Newtonian reflector (200mm x 1600mm FL) using eyepiece projection. I sill have the telescope and need to know -- can a 5DM2 operate without a lens, to use eyepiece projection? I would focus with Live View.

Yes, I know there are dust and humidity risks, but a dry, calm night would minimize those.
