    First post! Was lurking for a while :) 

    I thought I'd document what happens when you combine a Meade ETX-125 and a GH1, without much preparation other than physically joining the 2. Should be interesting to see how results can improve when I set the camera up properly and focus properly.

    Photos of the setup and some early in camera shots: just to show the reach: https://picasaweb.google.com/107573679753624434593/PanasonicGH1OnMeadeETX125

    In my opinion, this is a great use for the micro 4/3 cameras with the articulating viewscreen. I don't have to crouch upside-down to look through a viewfinder to focus; I can just flip the viewscreen around and look down at it. I took this with my G2 at prime focus of an Orion 150mm (mirror diameter) Maksutov Cassegrain telescope (focal length 1800mm, f/12):
