Please note that this is the tube only and does not come with a T-Adapter ring to fit your camera.

What else would be required to attach a DSLR (Nikon) to a telescope?

Not to Nikon but to any camera, you need a T Adapter. You can see that on Amazon's images: Lets see if this link will work or is it disabled by SD:

If you can use the LINK, then that is the part that is colored in Shade of gray and all you get, as stated is the tube, one end accepts 1.25 tube of a mid diameter telescope (Telescopes can also accept 0.9 or 2 inch) and the other end is a thread, 42mm in diameter that takes a T Ring adapter. Typically T rings are under $10, when you order directly from China, on ebay or likewise or you may already have one.

Why does this one cost 10x more?
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0053ZUW28/
Deluxe Telescope Camera Adapter Kit for Nikon SLR / DSLR - 1.25" Variable Eyepiece Projection & Prime Focus

Is it because it's adjustable?

I'd like to get into astrophotography but first I'm trying to do all the homework. Thanks for the info.

Better build but I wouldn't buy that. Spend your money for the Best optics, solid mount, good tracker. other accessories should only be good enough to do the work.

Also please note that though this is a good option for taking a casual picture, its not what ultimately you would like to do. As this will seat in exact location of your eyepiece, that is usually behind Telescope Diagonal when you actually would like to place your camera at prime focus, without going through anything that distort your image such as an extra mirror or prism. On the other hand, this tool can be easily used for your microscope, if you happened to have that also and need to have high quality image.

Bottom line, for this price, just buy this one to have something to start with, and you'll figure out a lot more, as your needs grow.

Thanks, OP. For more about how to use this adapter.

This link compares different ways of connecting a telescope to a camera:
http://www.televue.com/engine/TV3....asp?id=85
And this link gives much more detail about eyepiece projection:

This adapter looks fairly similar to the one in the deal and has some explanation of how to use it: https://www.telescopeadapters.com...apter.html
