Orion Variable SLR Camera Adapter 1.25"
What's Included With This Item:
- Note: Requires T-ring, sold separately, to fit your brand of camera
Universal camera adapters allow attachment of a camera body to reflector and refractor telescopes for either prime-focus or eyepiece-projection photography (hence the term "universal"). The adapter slides into the eyepiece holder as an eyepiece normally would.
This universal adapter is composed of two detachable parts: a prime-focus adapter (or "T-adapter") for prime-focus photography, and a fixed-length or variable extension tube for eyepiece-projection photography. A thumbscrew in theextension tube holds the eyepiece in place.
This combination of prime-focus and eyepiece-projection camera adapter has a sliding barrel design that allows variable projection distances. This allows forslight changes in magnification without swapping eyepieces when performing eyepiece-projection photography. Fits reflector and refractor telescopes with 1.25" eyepiece holders.
This Variable-Power Universal Camera Adapter is precision made of black-anodizedaluminum and is compatible with 1.25" focusers and many 1.25" eyepieces (some eyepieces have housing diameters that are too large to fit inside the adapter).
The barrel of the adapter is threaded for filters. A T-ring for your specific camera model (sold separately) is required to couple your camera body to the universal adapter.
For Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, a T-adapter (5116) or tele-extender (5127) are recommended instead, because their threaded fittings provide a more secure coupling of the camera to the telescope.
