  • Description

    If you've ever held your digital camera up to the eyepiece of a telescope, you've already dabbled with astrophotography. But you've likely also experienced the frustration that can come with trying to position your camera perfectly over the lens and hold it steady enough to snap a sharp photo. The Celestron Universal Digital Camera Adapter eliminates that frustration and makes capturing beautiful astrophotos as simple as "point and shoot."

    To use the adapter, clamp it onto your telescope's eyepiece and turn the knob for a secure fit. (It's compatible with both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces.) Next, attach your camera to the 1/4"-20 threaded bolt, just like you would mount it onto a standard tripod. The adapter features smooth adjustment knobs that allow you to fine-tune your camera's position over the eyepiece until it's perfectly aligned. Once you see the image on your camera's LCD display, just snap the photo. This adapter is also great for recording short videos of celestial objects like the Moon and planets. Your videos will be clear and steady--something you couldn't achieve by "freehanding."

    Take this handy adapter along on camping trips to dark-sky sites so you can capture photos of all your discoveries in an instant. It's perfect for snapping a quick photo during a visual observing session.

    If you've ever wanted to experiment with astrophotography, this just about as straightforward (and affordable!) as it gets. Get ready to enjoy this rewarding hobby--and take your telescope to the next level.
