 My photo accessories (Total: 454 €)
 Manfrotto 190DB tripod with 141RC head
During a long time, I had a cheap tripod with which I missed many pictures. With this quality tripod, offered by my friends for my birthday, I do not miss anything, except the mayonnaise.

Price: 130 €
 Digimate II Portable Photo Bank (30 GB)
Why buying expensive memory cards when some photobank are less expensive and have more storage capacity? I bought it when a 1 GB CF cost 50 €. For about 100 €, I bought on Ebay the Digimate and a 30 GB hard disk. Now, I can leave home for a long time without being feared of missing of storage capacity in my memory cards. And with the money I saved, I bought a fast PNY 80x 512 MB compact flash card. I also have a 256 MB CF card sold with the Canon DSLR.

Price: 100 €
 Home-made wire remote control
I'm not skinflint, but I'm happy to build my own accessories when it's possible. And build a wire remote control for my Canon 350D is easy. And I add it a RS232 port to connect (in the futur) a Palm to make a timer remote control.

Price: 4 €
 Antares Barlow 2x
This 1.25" barlow is good. I can't be more precise, because I use it only with my short refractor. I use it to capture the entire Moon in one shot with my Canon 350D

Price: 70 €
 William Optics VR-1 Minus Violet 2" Filter
My Mergez refractor is a simple doublet, so it suffer from chromatism. This filter is design to get ride of the purple halo around bright objects. It's rather efficient, but it tint the image in green. With Photoshop, I'm able to correct the white balance afterward.

Price: Bought with the second-hand Megrez
 Williams Optics DCL-4337 eyepiece
This eyepiece is necessary when you need to use your telescope as telelens with a camera whose you can't remove the lens. With it, you can fix your compact or bridge digital camera to capture the image cast by your intrument. I made my Moon libration animation with this eyepiece and my Camedia 5060 bridge.

Price: 150 €
