About this item

The Orion 1.25" Astrophotography Flip Mirror enables the astro-imager to find, center and focus a target object visually with a 1.25" eyepiece, then photograph it with a CCD camera. All without swapping out any equipment. It's a real time saver, making the normally tedious task of focusing with the CCD camera alone quicker and easier. Rather than having to take numerous photos to locate and focus your target, the Flip Mirror lets you do those things visually with an eyepiece. An internal mirror deflects the incoming light 90 degrees up into the eyepiece.

A helical fine focus mechanism on the eyepiece holder lets you set the eyepiece focus to be parfocal with the camera. Then, once you've focused the object in the eyepiece, a flip the side lever drops the mirror to allow the light to enter the camera, rendering a sharp, focused CCD image. The Imaging Flip Mirror was designed specifically for use with StarShoot Deep Space imagers and similarly sized CCD cameras, for which it provides full sensor illumination.

Male T-threads on the unit's metal housing allow direct attachment of the CCD camera body. The housing itself connects to a telescope's 1.25" focuser or adapter via the nosepiece, which alternatively can be removed to expose T-threads for direct coupling. The nosepiece is threaded for 1.25" filters. As convenient as it is for CCD imaging, the Imaging Flip Mirror also lets you enjoy visual observation when you want to take a brief break from shooting pictures. Accepts 1.25" eyepieces, not included. It requires 80mm of additional inward focus travel.
