T-adaptors give telescopes the ability to support cameras -- the connected camera can be used to take photographs through the lenses of the telescope. You can attach a 35mm camera to most T-adaptors, using a T-mount adaptor to attach the camera and T-adaptor. And if you'd like to take photographs through your Meade ETX 105, Meade's #64 T-Adapter and a universal T-mount can help you do just that.
