    Hello,
    
    I have taken some photos of the recent passes of ISS over Europe, they can
    be seen here:

    My astronomy site aims to demonstrate what can be done with a reasonably
    priced digital camera, but I am reaching its limits so I'd like to use this
    mail to ask a question that is slightly off topic, although if I get good
    results I will point my 'device' at The ISS....
    
    I am wondering if anyone has ever attempted to take astronomical photos by
    using a set of binoculars somehow attached to a camera? The best way I can
    think of is by mounting both the camera and binoculars on 2 tripods and
    aligning them manually. There are obviously lots of disadvantages to this
    method, especially if the object is moving!! 
    
    Please could anyone point me to somewhere more appropriate for this question
    or, even better, explain how I could achieve this?
    
    
    Thanks and Regards,
    	Chris
