    Sky-Watcher S20550 reviews

    Star Adventurer Ball Head Adapter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Black, not Green The unit I got was Black anodized, not Green. Happens to look better with my telescope mount in black, so that it OK with me. Would like the dovetail part to be a bit longer as it only just fits in the SkyWatcher HEQ5 mount between the two locking screws. Another centimeter of width would lock better. Also, most pro tripod heads have a set screw that penetrates to the bottom of the ball head. This provides extra torque preventing the ball head from unscrewing from the adapter. I may just modify the adapter this way myself. A DSLR on the ball head on a telescope mount can place rotational torque on this joint and cause it to come loose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid DSLR support I am using this adapter with a Sirui K-40X ball head to secure my Nikon DSLR on my equatorial telescope mount. The adapter fits securely into the dovetail and the ball head fits accordingly onto the adapter. This is exactly the type of adapter I have been looking for to guide my DSLR with its normal lenses. Best of all it was very inexpensive!
