    This Product is no problem to use with my Canon 8.0 SD-elph point and shoot digital. If could be better, it would have to be a custom setup. This item came with my Konuspot 80 MM Spotting Scope. I was able just to look at the picture and set it up in only 4-5 minutes.

    Product does not work on the spotter scope that I have. This is a good idea as long as the camera and spotter scope will work with each other.
    It is well made and serves the purpose that it was made for. But the product have to work together.
    Adjustment is a little difficult. Can be done with some patience.

    Comments about Konus #1300 Universal Digiscoping Adapter:

    This adaptor needs to go back to the drawing table, it clamps directly onto the zoom ring not a practicle set up. I bougt the barska unversal set up and it ataches to the scope ring atachment so you can still use the focus.

        Comments about Konus #1300 Universal Digiscoping Adapter:

        I got the Konus Universal adapter for afocal astrophotography using a Nikon Coolpix S6000. It eliminated the shakiness of the hand and I am being able to take pictures with the delay timer. In the future I will add a small aluminum frame to hold a cable release on top of the shooter, allowing me to take bursts of 10 high resolution images. Fortunately the screw of hat holds the camera is long enough for that extra function. Given the price, and given that I am doing astrophotography in the cheap this is a good buy. The other reason I bough this adapter is that for its price is one of the lightest one out there, not loading the telescope too much on the side. The only issue (that is why I did not gave it 5 stars) is when I use short eyepieces, and/or not use the barlow, the lens holder does not allow the camera to get close enough to get into the eye relief of the lens.

          Comments about Konus #1300 Universal Digiscoping Adapter:

          It's well built and attaches easily to the eyepiece of my Celestron C90. However the platform will only accomodate a thin camera with limited lens extension like my 4x zoom Samsung. My 10x zoom PowerShot wouldn't fit as the lens extends out about two inches.

          It takes some adjusting to get the camera in exactly the right position. Not a problem if you intend to use just one camera, but it would be a pain to have to readjust it for different cameras.

              I'll give it four stars because it works fine on the scope I have (Old Nikon Earth and Sky). If you have a high end scope this won't fit becaues it's too small.

                  I am using this product with my Canon 2000is camera for astronomy. The fram is made of quality metal with the platform for the camera being heavy duty polyethelyn plastic. Although it appears to be heavy it is not. The way Knus made the camera adaptor to line up with the camera is quick and easy. Because the price is so cheap one would think that the camera adaptor is to. You will not be disappointed in this product. De Lorme Broussard

                      I use this adapter with my Celestron telescope. It attaches to the 1.25" viewfinder and firmly holds the camera. Even though I am a beginner, I think it works great and recommend it!! Best price online as well!

                                    This will not fit on my Kowa TSN 663 eyepieces. The opening made to go around the eyepiece is simply too small. I think it was made for older scopes when the eyepieces had smaller diameters. It appears to be well made. Too bad the company didn't update their product.
