Meade T-Mount SLR Camera Adapter for Nikon F-Mount

B&H # METMN Mfr # 07378
No Longer Available

Ultratelephoto photography is easily achieved with your telescope by purchasing this T-mount adapter, along with the SLR camera adapter which works with your telescope.  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 this 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.

        Comments about Meade T-Mount SLR Camera Adapter for Nikon F-Mount:

        This product is a well-made, well structured product that fit my Nikon D5100 perfectly. It's smooth, well-machined and very well put together. It's great for digi-scoping, which is what I use this for - to connect to my Bushnell scope.

        A very simple product which mounts on your SLR camera to allow you to attach it to your telescope for astrophotography or various other uses. I use it for prime focus astrophotography. It is well designed and worked perfectly.

              Let's me use old T mount lenses on my Nikon D-80 in manual mode. No metering but with 300 and 500 mm lenses I can fake it.

                Comments about Meade T-Mount SLR Camera Adapter for Nikon F-Mount:

                I tried taking some pictures of the moon for the first time about a year ago, when i got my first Telescope, the way I did it, was by holding a simple digital camera straight to the telescope's eye piece, after about 30 attempts I got 3 ok shots. But then I found out about the T-Mount.
                I got the T-Mount for Nikon and a 64ST for T-Mount Adapter. and now I use my Nikon SLR to take the pictures with the camera directly attached to the telescope, it is like having a super zoom. The T-Mount can be use to attach different optical instruments and lenses to your SLR camera like telescopes, Microscopes, lenses and extensions. (Check your gear for Compatibility).

                  I just bought this to couple my Nikon D300s to my Meade ETX125EC reflector telescope. It's a simple, sturdy adapter ring, and is absolutely perfect if you want to start trying a little astrophotography and have a Meade telescope and a Nikon camera. Fits onto any Nikon F-Mount body, whether digital or 35mm film. I had gorgeous photos of the moon and planets within minutes of attaching this mount. Couldn't be easier...

                    Great quality, glossy finish, no hesitation hanging my $2500 camera off of it.I trust the Meade name more than others and if you have a heavy, expensive camera, you might want to as well.Don't forget, you may need an extension tube (but get a t-mount one, they're cheaper).

                          It's hard to screw up a T-Mount. Fits securely on the camera and the lens. I even use it with duct tape to mount all sorts of weird optics to my camera.
