Vixen Optics 3878 overview

  • 1Description

The Vixen Direct Wide Adapter provides frame-filling prime focus connections between the Vixen 60mm drawtubes of the R200SS & VC200L telescopes and your SLR camera.  It can also be used on other Vixen telescopes with 60mm inner diameter focuser drawtubes (which includes the majority of their refractors) but with those scopes you'll need to lengthen the optical path with the Vixen #2956 extension tube in order to achieve focus.

The Direct Wide Adapter allows easy rotation for image orientation after mounting-you'll never go back to simple T-Ring connections again.

You'll need your camera system's specific Vixen T-mount adapter, but the Direct Wide Photo Adapter doesn't screw in to the female threads on the front of a T-mount.  Instead, it uses three set screws to affix to the outside of the T-mount!  This keeps the internal opening nice and clear, allowing the best possible pictures and especially eliminating vignetting when using a full-frame 24x36mm format camera combined with a fast optical system in the telscope.

    Vixen Optics 3878 reviews

    Direct Wide Photo Adapter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from serves the purpose As indicated in the optical diagrams of the R200SS, this is used for photography when a DSLR is used. Note an adapter from Vixen is also needed. I have an adapter (for Nikon) but its size does not match withe this Direct Wide Photo adapter. The Vixen Nikon adapter has the right size.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not possible to meet the focus spacing There is no easy way to meet the required spacing using this adapter. When I searched through web sites, the only option that I found is to make a custom extension tube. But this tube is three times more expensive than this adapter.
