Bushnell 780104 Overview

  • 1Description

Ultratelephoto photography is easily achieved with your telescope by purchasing this SLR camera adapter. 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 a 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.

Bushnell 780104 Reviews

SLR (35mm OR Digital) Camera Adapter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but needed work The fitting to the telescope was wonderful and fit like a glove to my Bushnell reflecting telescope. The big problem was that this adatping mount placed my Canon Digital Rebel 1/4 inch too far from the focal point even when I had the focus adjuster at minimum. I was about to shrug my shoulders and chalk it up as a loss but I decided to unscrew the silver lower cyliner and grind off the 1/4 inch I needed and then put it together again. Now it works fine and I look forward to photographing the stars. It's an okay buy but it may need some major adjusting depending on the telescope you have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Might work for prime focus, too I bought this to get a start on astophotography with a Celestron 4.5 48 reflector and a Canon T1i. I'm chiming in to add to the other comments: The bottom end of the eyepiece-holder is a T-mount thread and can be screwed into your camera's T-ring (sold separately! ;-) ) to position your camera for 'prime focus' use-- i.e. with no telescope eyepiece-- if your scope's focus rack will allow your sensor to get close enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, very well-built I can tell this adapter was made with care. There are no paint chippings and it is built very sturdily. The product image on B&H, for some reason, does not properly represent the actual look of the adapter. You can screw in eyepiece filters or barlow lenses to the adapter with ease, which is great if you intend to do imaging with narrowband filters.
