Are there adaptors for cameras that mount to the scope or do we fabricate something?
Is any camera compatible with the Meade software?
Or do you have to purchase cameras and software specifically for the type of scope we have or want to get next?

There are several adapters made to make them work.
If using a SLR or a DSLR there are t rings available for each camera model.
If using something like a sony cybershot with a fixed lens they make an a focal adapter and you will basically shoot through an eyepiece.
In a lot of cases if you have steady hands you can hold your camera right up the the eyepiece and set your exposure time on the camera and snap an image.
Astrophotography is by no means an easy thing to do if you have no expierance with it.
It isnt lie shooting portraits but when you figure it out it is very rewarding.
There are many many books out on the subject.
The best think to do is do a google search on the subject and see if this is your cup of tea.
Google astrophotography, a focal, astronomical imaging with a digital camera and so forth.
