Orion 1.25" Variable Universal Camera Adapter - 05339

SKU: ORI-05339
 

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.The universal adapters are 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 the extension tube holds the eyepiece in place.Each adapter is precision made of black-anodized aluminum 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 and tele-extender are recommended instead, because their threaded fittings provide a more secure coupling of the camera to the telescope.Variable-Power Universal Camera Adapter #5262. This combination of prime-focus and eyepiece-projection camera adapter has a sliding barrel design that allows variable projection distances. This eliminates the need to change eyepieces when different magnifications are desired for eyepiece-projection photography. Fits reflector and refractor telescopes with 1.25" eyepiece holders.
