Ultratelephoto photography is easily achieved with your Meade ETX spotting scope or telescope by purchasing this SLR camera adapter.  You'll need to take precautions to minimize vibrations, such as locking up the camera's mirror if possible as well as using a cable release or remote control to fire the shutter.

This adapter has two parts; a threading and an extension tube.  The combination is screwed on to the ETX-90/105/125 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes' rear cell threading, making the ETX-90 a 1450mm f/16.0, the ETX-105 an 1830mm f/17.4, nad the ETX-125 a 2130mm f/18.0 prime lens.

With APS-C style digital SLRs, it is possible to use this adapter without the vignetting-eliminating extension tube.  You still may experience some minor vignetting, but you'll get a shorter and faster lens combination (ETX-90=1250mm f/13.8, ETX-105=1640mm f/15.6, & ETX-125=1900mm f/15.0).

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product from a Good Manf but... This is a well made product from Meade. I use it on my ETX-90 with a Nikon D3200. I've got no complaints about it's performance or quality.BUT... it's overpriced. It's nothing more than a two-piece metal tube. Yes, it is required to connect an SLR or DSLR to the scope but jeez. It's not like it's an eyepiece or anything. I just think that Meade is taking advantage of the situation.You can at least save yourself a few dollars and buy a different brand t-mount instead of the Meade t-mount (I use a General Brand Lens Mount Adapter - T Mount Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for starter astrophotographers This is essential if you have a Meade ETX telescope and wish to start trying a little astrophotography. It comes in two pieces, and you can use either one of them or both in combination, depending of what you want to see in your frame. It's easy to use, durable and took me literally seconds to mount. You'll also need a T-Mount for your SLR camera of choice, in my case a Nikon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent craftmanship!!! As expected from any Meade product, this SLR adapter has excellent craftmanship, rendering as a must-have for SLR astrophotograpy enthusiasts. Perhaps the only objection I find is that one must find a felt or other type of soft material to store it and avoid scratches on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Astrophotography This and the camera T mount are required for Astrophotography. It is easy to assemble and use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meade SLR Camera Adapter Requires 2x Barlow w/EX90 If you're going to use this with a Meade ETX90 the focus on your SLR will not be in sync with the eyepiece. By luck I discovered that the Meade 2x Barlow short-focus tube is the correct length to bring them relatively in sync. The lens unscrews and then you're able to use the flip-mirror functionality to take pictures without refocusing. Also be advised that if you're using a Meade ETX90 your 750g Nikon is going to require manual assistance to lift the camera extended to max magnification at 2 sections or a counterbalance system. Good luck with that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Connection Used the adapter and the T-MOUNT for NIKON to attach my D90 to a Meade 125 etx. I haven't actually taken pictures using it. But the connection was solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm Fit the telescope just like it was supposed to. We got some great shots on our 1st night out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit - needs a bit of lubrication Fit my Parks Jovian 90 perfectly, but a bit tricky to get on and off without lubrication. Added a tiny amount of electrical grease (pure silicone lubricant) and much easier to get on and off with no worries about being getting stuck. Took off the extension for use with my scope. Mated with a Canon ring and got great photos. Be sure the ring you buy has a proper alignment key slot fit.
