Vixen Optics 2680 overview

  • 1Description

The Vixen Flip Mirror System has a conventional 1.25" eyepiece adapter in the vertical position, and a second straight-through attachment which lets you directly screw upon an SLR camera T-mount.  Also included in the package which adapts the straight-through path to 1.25", so that you can have an eyepiece on both sides or you can shoot perform eyepiece projection adapter with the #3931 SX Camera Adapter.

The flip mirror allows speedy switching between viewing from the vertical position or allowing the light to pass straight through the flip mirror to your SLR camera (with or without an eyepiece in the path) attached to the rear.  When using the flip mirror for photography, users commonly insert illuminated reticle eyepieces in the vertical position so they can periodically flip the mirror to check that the image isn't drifting during the exposure, and correct for such drift if necessary.

2" Focuser barrel accepts 49mm filters (use a 49mm to 48mm step-down ring to employ conventional astronomical 48mm filters)
Each output of flip mirror has 42mm T-mount threading for prime focus photography with SLR cameras (camera-specific T-mount adapter is required)
Add optional #3931 SX Camera Adapter to straight through path for eyepiece projection photography with SLR cameras (camera-specific T-mount adapter is required)

    Vixen Optics 2680 reviews

    Flip Mirror System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't forget accessories for this Flip mirror Flip mirror works well but to save time don't forget to purchase 2female to 2 Inner Diameter Barrel Rear (I got Tele Vue Schmidt-Cassegrain Adapter - Long for my Celestron Next Star 8 SCT). My set up: SCTelescope - Tele Vue Schmidt-Cassegrain Adapter-Long - Vixen Flip Mirror - T-Mount for Canon EF-M(screw in directly without rear tube)- Canon M. As usual B&H service is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vixen flip mirror works great to shoot the 8/21/17 Eclipse I used the Vixen flip mirror with my Televue 85mm telescope and Canon digital camera to photograph the 21.08.2017 total eclipse from western Kentucky. The flip mirror fit securely in the 2 focuser on the telescope. The right angle port with the eyepiece tube removed accepted the T-ring for the Canon camera. This was especially helpful given the 62 degree elevation of the sun and made focusing through the camera viewfinder easy. In other photography situations an eyepiece can be used in either port with the camera in the other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well. I purchased the Vixen Flip Mirror Diagonal for Astrophotography, therefore, I needed to also buy some accessories. Thanks to fellow reviewer, I was able to get all the accessories at the same time as the mirror. My setup: Celestron EdgeHD 11 - Tele Vue Schmidt-Cassegrain Adapter-Long - Vixen Flip Mirror - T-Mount for Canon EF-M Canon Camera. On the upper tube of the mirror: Vixen #37292 T-Thread to 2 Eyepiece Adapter 2 Celestron 29mm eyepice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Vixen Flip Mirror I liked the Vixen Flip Mirror { well built } until I tried to tread my 2 48mm filters onto it. 48mm treading is the standard. This is a serious mistake. I bought an adaptor but the 49mm OD is to big for my Celestron 6r. housing. I contacted Vixen for a solution but no reply. I have not found an adaptor yet. This has been a real head ack. This should have been caught by the QC before they did a production run. De Lorme

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool to flip between mirror and 1.25 eyepiece As the others said, don't forget to buy the TeleVue 2 to SCT adapter to go with this, unscrew the back tube and use the T-mount adapter direct. You might also want (as I bought) some parfocal rings for the eyepieces (not available at B&H but maybe they will add them) My setup is complete, this easily flips between perfectly focused eyepiece and perfectly focused SLR. Can't wait to drive out to the star park!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ces la vie This is a great little unit up until I started using this flip mirror I was having a hard time taking photos with my universal set up this eliminates all of the vibrations in the telescope and allows me to really zoom into my target while the telescope slews .. great product....phil
