Excellent images!

Can you place a DSLR on any equatorial mount?

I am thinking of buying a cheapish £199 telescope which includes an equatorial mount and wondering could I use the mount with my K-30.

I would like to get the 0-GPS1 although this is the same price as the telescope and mount.

Thanks. I mounted my camera on my TV85 which was on the equatorial mount that did the tracking. There are equatorial mounts available just for cameras that you might look at instead.
