Hi Cosmos2002,

You didn't specify whether you have the telescope or whether you still need to buy it. Anyway here are some links for adapters to Pentax cameras the mount is always the same.

Adapter K-mount_1

Adapter K-mount_2

Adapter K-mount_3

Bye, Mario

mmm probably better off using your phone actually..with a phone you're photographing the exit pupil image which is maybe 5mm wide (focal length/magnification). To use your dslr, usual technique is the exit pupil is projected onto the sensor without a lens on the camera (hence: eyepiece projection method) at an effective aperture of f-large number. It's more hassle and difficulty (balance, connections etc) to try to set this up on binocs than a scope. With a phone the small lens is a good size for the exit pupil, phone just needs to be held steady right on the eyepiece.
