      Works very well to connect my Sony Alpha 330 to the T adapter for my telescope. Nice solid construction.

          Comments about Vello T Mount Lens to Sony Alpha Camera Adapter:

          The fit and finish of this adapter is nice. Feels hefty and well made. The threads are smooth and accurate. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that when attached on the camera body, it is not completely locked into place and rotates back and forth just a tiny fraction of a degree when I focus. Really, a minuscule amount, but I can hear it click, and I'd prefer if it didn't move at all, so I took off a star for that. Otherwise, top notch.

              Comments about Vello T Mount Lens to Sony Alpha Camera Adapter:

              I buy it because its required to use with the rokinon 800mm
              Its well made, fit good, i think i wont had any problem with it.
              The only tiny issue i had, its that after putting in the rokinon lense and mount it in the camera the lower part of the lense where it say "made in korea" gets at top, and the pretty gold plate of the lense along with the focus numbers get in the bottom, dont know if its problem of the lense or this adapter, or just luck when the screwing rings where made.
              But i did not affect at all the use of the lense, i mean i never look those numbers when focusing, and the plate its just cosmetic.

                  Used this product to attach my Sony a77 onto my Celestron NexStar 6SE telescope. It served its purpose well. Got some pretty decent shots of the moon the night it arrived.

                  Only sketchy thing about it is the little screw that mounts onto the telescope itself. It's a little odd how the entire camera body is held by two/three small easily removable screws, haha.

                      I use this to connect my Sony Alpha 99 to my telescopes & other astronomical accessories for astrophotography. Happy to say it performs MUCH better than the one I had previously that broke recently. That one threaded perfectly to some accessories but not well at all to others, especially those from Tele Vue. This one, however, mates perfectly to everything.

                        I ordered the T-ring specifically to mount my telescope lens to my Sony A77. The fit was perfect and so precise that I have absolutely no play in the heavy lens, even without a tripod. Extremely happy! And, the customer service was far more than I expected when I called for assistance to ensure I was ordering the correct piece. Now, if I can figure out how to use (focus) the lens in manual mode, I'll be even happier!

                              It's great to be able to use all of the old T mount lenses on the digital camera.

                                It has a solid feel and fits perfectly onto my A55. I use it with the "Celestron SLR Camera Adapter with Integral 2x Barlow Lens" to achieve prime focus on my Celestron 4.5" NexStar newt. The downside is that I have a little too much magnification, which I'd prefer not to have, but I'm ok with that, as cannot achieve focus without the 2x barlow lens.
