Konus 1301 Overview

This Konus 1301 Universal Digiscoping Adapter is a system that consists of three main components: a camera platform, a camera platform extension, and a smartphone holder. Those three components can be variously configured to allow a point-and-shoot camera or a smartphone to use a telescope or spotting scope as a telephoto lens.

Featuring an adjustable clamp, the camera platform can be attached to a telescope or spotting scope eyepiece with a diameter of 1.15" up to 1.73" (44mm). A point-and-shoot camera with 1/4"-20 mounting threads can then be screwed onto the camera platform's mounting bolt, which can be moved a total of 1.5" forwards or backwards. Additionally, a connected camera can be adjusted a total of 4.5" upwards or downwards. This combination of horizontal and vertical movement, along with two selectable slots for the camera platform's mounting bolt, allows a connected camera's lens to be aimed into a spotting or telescope's eyepiece. For cameras that require up to 5.1" of additional distance from an eyepiece to effectively digiscope, a camera platform extension is included that can be screwed onto the camera platform's mounting bolt, and has its own 1/4"-20 camera mount.

A smartphone holder is also included for digiscoping with wireless handheld devices. Two 1/4"-20 mounting bolts allow it to attach to the camera platform, the combination of which can accommodate a smartphone up to 2.3" to 3.9" high, and at least to 4.0" wide when measured in a horizontal orientation.

Digiscoping adapter

By Albert

Unfortunately this adapter is very heavy. Therefore, it you are planning to use it with a small telescope it is very difficult to use because it keeps destabilizing the telescope. For this reason I had to return it.

Point and Shoot Adapter

I attach my Nikon Cool Pix camera using the Konus adapter to my telescope for photographing bright objects like the Moon and Planets. It is perfect for my level of ability at this moment.

Advertised specs inaccurate

Very well made adapter.  But, the online ad specifies a 2 maximum eyepiece adapter, when in fact its only 1-5/8.  It will not fit the eyepiece on the Vortex spotting scope I bought from B&H a couple years ago, since it has a 1-3/4 eyepiece.  Because of that, I am sending the adapter back to B&H.
