Astro-images taken through a telescope on a tracking mount provide breathtaking color and detail that you just can't see with your eyes alone. The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope.
The 1.25" Variable Universal Camera Adapter slides into the telescope focuser and connects to a camera t-ring for prime-focus or eyepiece-projection photography. The sliding barrel design lets you vary the magnification without changing eyepieces.
