depends on the type of scope. The skywatcher dobsonians come with an SLR mount which can be bought seperatly for a few pounds. Refractors struggle because the camera weighs the scope down and moves it off target. You can buy the mounts but needs to be supported aswell. Best bet would be to google your make of scope then add ''SLR mount'' to the end.
