The Orion 1.25" Universal Camera Adapter enables attachment of the camera body to refractor and reflector telescopes for eyepiece-projection or prime-focus photography. Simply slide the adapter into the eyepiece holder like an eyepiece normally would and its that simple.

The Orion 1.25" Universal Camera Adapter is made up of two detachable parts that include a prime-focus adapter and a fixed-length or variable extension tube. The prime-focus adapter (T-adapter) is for prime-focus photography while the fixed-length or variable extension tube is for eyepiece-projection photography. Holding the telescope eyepiece in place is a thumbscrew located in the extension tube. This non-variable barrel design allows a fixed projection distance for eyepiece-projections photography and is fitted for refractor and reflector telescopes with a 1.25" telescope eyepiece.

The Orion 1.25" Universal Camera Adapter is specifically made of black-anodized aluminum and is compatible with 1.25" telescope focusers, as well as many 1.25" telescope eyepieces. The barrel of the adapter is also threaded for filters. A T-ring for specific camera models is required to couple your camera body to this universal adapter.
