Orion Steadypix Deluxe Universal Camera Adapter

The Orion Steadypix Deluxe universal digital camera adapter is perfect for connecting an all-in-one digital camera or small camcorder to a telescope, microscope or spotting scope.

Simply attach this bracket to a low-to-medium powered eyepiece, attach your camera to the platform, and centre the camera lens over the eyepiece, using the view in the LCD display as your guide.

Fits most 1.25" eyepieces and many 2" eyepieces. Clamp accepts eyepieces with an outside diameter of 31mm (1.22") to 61mm (2.4"). If your eyepiece is smaller (like some microscopes), you will need to wrap masking tape around the eyepiece to increase the diameter.

Accepts a wide variety of cameras where the measurement from the front of the extended lens assembly to the centre of the tripod mount socket is 15mm to 121mm.

Cameras with low optical magnification work best, because they typcially have smaller objective lenses and will produce less vignetting of the field (light drop-off at the edges). We recommend 1x-5x.

Cameras with a high optical magnification (10x, 24x, etc.) will produce a severe vignette, where you have a small image circle surrounded by a large black border. The severe vignette can be reduced by zooming in. The resulting field of view may be too small to be useful, depending on application.
