Celestron SLR Camera Adapter with Integral 2x Barlow Lens

You Pay: $44.46
Product Highlights
  • For Refractor & Reflector Scopes
  • Requires Camera-Specific T-Mount Adapter

Ultratelephoto photography is easily achieved with your telescope by purchasing this Celestron SLR Camera Adapter with Integral 2x Barlow Lens.  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.  This SLR adapter's got a built-in 2x barlow lens to assure that any telescope can achieve proper focus, but many telescopes will be able to use it with the barlow attachment removed if you prefer.  It will depend upon how much in-travel your focuer barrel has at its disposal.  It can, of course, also be used on a catadioptric scope which has a 1.25" focuser barrel.

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!

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.

Inserts in to 1.25" focusers
Requires T-mount SLR adapter (listed here as accessories)
Incorporates 2x magnification
Built-in barlow lens can be removed (some telescopes will not focus properly without barlow)

      Once I received this lens, I attached it to my Canon Digital Rebel XT using a T-Adapter and was able to finally take a picture of the moon through my Celestron 130 SLT telescope. Previously I had used another lens, but could not get anything in focus as the lens was basically just a metal tube. Without this device, I would not have been able to accomplish this.

      The side screw was too tight and there was a small burr in the inside, and I thought I should return it, but I was eager to try it, and decided to remove the burr. I scratched a bit the interior of the piece in the process, but it did not affect the performance. The lens can be removed and used with other eyepieces,which is a nice feature.

      Photograph with your telescope

      By Tyson

      from NJ

      Comments about Celestron SLR Camera Adapter with Integral 2x Barlow Lens:

      I bought this adapter along with an eos specific adapter in order to take photograph with a recently purchased celestron reflector telescope. Attaching this adapter to the camera is as simple as attaching any lens. You must purchase your camera specific adapter for your brand of camera. That is an extra piece. Once on the camera , the camera can be mounted to the telescope by simply inserting the adapter into the eyepiece of the telescope and focus is achieved with the telescope's focussing wheel.Once your camera is attached the telescope/camera combination may be quite unwieldy and great care must be used when firing the camera in order to minimize vibration. Use mirror lock up or live view if you can. I have only photographed the moon thus far but the object image fills about 1/3-1/2 of the frame with the moon on a 650mm focal length. The detail which can be obtained is very impressive especially considering that the combination of celestron SLR adapter plus camera specific adapter costs less than $. It opens up a world of photo opportunity.

        It fits perfectly on my Tasco Luminova 40-114675 telescope. The barlow lens is required to focus well, otherwise yu have to use the Barlow lens that comes with the telescope, but this adapter is better. Notice you have to use an additional ring adapter for the specific camera brand you have. In my case I'm using a Nikon.

        Connecting a DSLR to a Telescope

          I am a freelance photographer with an interest in astronomy. This adapter made it easy to connect my DSLR to my 8" reflector telescope. Because of the short distance to the secondary mirror the included 2x Barlow did the trick and I was capturing images of the moon in just minutes. The adapter also works well with my small 80mm refractor telescope as well.I use it as a long lens with a manual focus.

              Solved My Problem for Prime Focus

                    I've been exploring astrophotography with an entry-level 4-1/2" reflector telescope (Meade). Unfortunately, I was unable to do prime focus with a standard T-mount and adapter for my Panasonic GH-1 camera. The only lens I had that would fit in the T-mount with the adapter was a 9mm eyepiece (great for high mag, but difficult to use). The 2x Barlow lens solved that problem (some magnification, but very usable).

                        Used with 6" Newtonian. Had tried a non-magnifying T-adapter but couldn't get the camera close enough to focus. This did the job. Moon fills up entire frame. Remote release is a must (I used a corded one).

                              There is a huge bright patch at the center of every picture. Need to shop for some other brand.

                                Pleased with product relative to its pricing.

                                        Comments about Celestron SLR Camera Adapter with Integral 2x Barlow Lens:

                                        i am sure the functionality of this product varies according to ones telescope and area of viewing. unfortunately both of those are not too superb where i primarily view and photograph. this is in no way the fault of the adapter, as it works just as advertised. if i decide to upgrade my equipment or location i still have all i need to attempt good astrophotography.
