Ultra-telephoto photography is easily achieved with your telescope by purchasing this Celestron 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.

    Purchased to mount my Nikon D80 to a Astronomy telescope. It works fine, and mounts solidly.

    The only weakness is that, if you have the camera release button depressed, then the t-Mount doesn't have a solid stop when you rotate the ring to remove it from the camera. The T-Mount will continue rotating 360 degrees on the camera. That makes it more difficult to determine when to pull the T-Mount off the camera. Not a big deal, I am getting used to it.

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

      I use this along with the Celestron T-adapter to mount my D7000 to my telescope. I have not had any problems mounting this to the camera. Just line up the dots just like you do when mounting your lens. The only thing is that the little white dot on this adapter could be a little bigger making it easier to see but that is not a huge deal to me.

        Missing Proper Stops

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

            On my D40, it fails to properly lock into place - just keeps turning and getting very tight until it loosens again and does a full 360. Likewise, it requires a lot of fiddling to get it back of again.

            I have never had this issue with various Nikon lenses of all various vintages, or the one Sigma lens I have. I did have the issue with an old, super cheap off brand piece of junk, which immediately went into the trash.

            This adapter is heading to the trash also - as soon as I get it off the camera. I see other reviews mentioning similar things, but for some reason they have given it more stars.

            I can also confirm that the threading this on to the t mount indicates a roughly machined thread, but I don't know how much is this adapter versus the inexpensive T mount I have.

                sturdy construction, worked well with celestron 1.25" camera adapter...
                keep in mind that the weight of the camera will change the balance of the scope.
                Be ready to shoot on Manual.

                    Stumbled across this one day online and bought it to try it out. I thought I was going to need an additional adapter until I found out my Celestron Ultima 80 spotting scope had the correct threads under the rubber eye cup. This fit perfectly onto my camera. I took a few shots of a full moon at night and the pics turned out great. The detail was much better than what I used to get with my Nikon 55-300mm lens and cropping. Used it during the day on some distant objects with similar results. Looking forward to trying it out on some bald eagles in my area.

                      With the T-Mount, I adapted my Celestron spotting scope to my digital Nikon D-7000. Now I take long distance detailed nature pics, especially ducks and hawks. Since the spotting scope is a screw-on, the lens can loosen up in the T-Mount with the constant refocusing. Just keep an eye on it.

                                      This was used with the Celestron SLR camera adaptor. Worked as planned.

                                        I was looking for a t-ring so I could adapt my Nikon D80 to my telescope to use for prime focus astrophotography. I came across this product through seaching the web. It seems very well made and precisely machined. It fit onto my camera perfect the first time with no slop or play at all. All this and it was cheaper than all the other places that I was looking. Thanks for a great deal and a quality product B&H!

                                        It works just fine. I find that the adapter fits a bit snug and it difficult to sometimes align it properly. All in all it is a good value.

                                                This was the lowest cost alternative and performs as well as more expensive T adapters.
