The Lumicon SLR Camera Adapter for Catadioptric Telescopes attaches to any SCT scope with the standard 2"-18 female threaded rear cell, and allows you to easily achieve extreme telephoto photography with SLR camera. 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. Vibration suppression pads under your telescope's tripod will help quite a bit, too.
To use this adapter, first remove the eyepiece. Next, attach the SLR camera adapter to the rear 2"-18 cell threading of your catadioptric scope by screwing it in; the opposite end of this adapter (away from the front of the scope) will accept a T-mount SLR camera adapter. Choose the T-mount corresponding to your camera system and your SLR can be attached to your scope/adapter/T-mount combination just as if it were a regular SLR lens.
While some SLR cameras may perhaps work in aperture-priority autoexposure mode, most SLR cameras will need to be in the manual exposure mode. There is no communication of the aperture value to the SLR. If the body of your SLR has a focusing switch, set the switch to manual focusing.
Works with any catadioptric scope with a 2"-18 rear threaded cell
Not intended for use with catadioptric scopes which have a rack-and-pinion focusing system
