Celestron SLR (35mm OR Digital) Camera Adapter for 5.0", 6.0", 8.0" & 11.0" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes - Requires Camera-Specific T-Mount Adapter

Ultratelephoto photography is easily achieved with your telescope by purchasing this SLR camera adapter. You'll need to take precautions to minimize vibrations, such as locking up the mirror if possible as well as using a cable release or remote control to fire the shutter.

First, remove the eyepiece. Next, attach the SLR camera adapter where the eyepiece would normally be attached to the telescope, and screw in a t-mount adapter to the opposite end of the SLR camera adapter. Now you can attach your camera to the t-mount and you are ready to begin taking pictures!

For higher-magnification pictures of very small objects such as the moon and planets, consider instead the Deluxe Tele-Extender (#93643) which shoots through the telescope's eyepiece.

Note! Your camera will need to be in fully manual exposure mode, although some brands of camera may also work in aperture-priority autoexposure mode.  Additionally, if there is a switch on the camera which chooses the focus mode, that switch must indicate manual focusing.

      Solid

      By Todd

      from Oregon

      Comments about Celestron SLR (35mm OR Digital) Camera Adapter for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes:

      Far superior to a standard t-mount adapter. Holds my SLR solid to the back of the scope without a hint of play even after hours of imaging.

        Comments about Celestron SLR (35mm OR Digital) Camera Adapter for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes:

        Fits like a glove to my older Celestar C8. I really like how it holds my Canon camera very securely. There is no wobble or image shift like with standard eyepiece adapters.

        I also like how this shortens the length and now my camera can see to the pole. This will allow me to easily polar align (very accurately) using the zoom capabilities of the camera.

        I haven't had a clear night to try it to see if the vignetting from the narrower eyepiece adapter was reduced/eliminated but the wider FOV should help.

          If you want to mount your camera on the telescope, you need this. the only negative that I have is that the threads are very fragile -- be careful or you can cross thread it.

                              The only complaint I have with this is actually with the threads on the telescope. It is very easy to cross thread this when trying to attach it to the telescope. Not fun if you're trying to do a quick change from the visual back to the T-adapter, or vise versa for that matter.

                                        The adapter is very simple and can't do much wrong with it. Easy to attach to the scope (keep in mind that you lose the standard viewing optic) switching things around can be of an issue in dusty or humid conditions

                                        Works OK on my Sony A-850. It tends to have some black edges and the T-ring is a disaster and did drop my camera on the lawn.
                                        Manual focusing can be of an issue and it works only for "static" subjets. With the motors it is pretty much impossible to track any moving objects

                                          I tried this adapter and the other one that attaches to the visual back. This one is definitely much sturdier with my old, heavy 35mm camera attached.

                                            Haven't tried it yet, but it's a pretty simple beast. not much to go wrong!

                                                I have a Celestron NexStar 8 and I needed to mount my Canon EOS XSI digital SLR at the prime focus. This plus a Canon EOS T-ring does the job to perfection. I compared prices[...]and merchant reputation online before deciding to purchase at B&H.

                                                  I didn't know what to expect when i purchased this adapter. Wanting to take some astro photos through my husbands telescope, though I am very particular with my Canon 50D, i was nervous about any adapter. Once i used it and saw how easy this was to use without any complications with my camera, I would surely recommend this adapter.
