If you have a telescope and a smartphone, you can be an astrophotographer! All you need additionally is our SteadyPix Universal Smartphone Adapter. It's an adjustable bracket that holds almost any "candy bar" or "slate" type smartphone directly over a telescope's eyepiece, allowing high-power daytime and celestial photography.

If you've ever tried snapping a picture by holding a smartphone over a telescope's eyepiece by hand, you know how frustrating it can be to get just the right alignment while holding the phone steady enough to snap a great shot. The SteadyPix makes it easy, enabling you to take perfectly framed, sharply focused, amazing photos of lunar crater beds, Saturn and its rings, Jupiter's cloud bands, eclipses, and more - time after time. And since you'll have taken the photo with your smartphone, it's easy to share your results with family and friends.  

The adjustable-width bracket expands from 2" to 3-1/8" in width and up to 5-3/4" in length (height). This includes all iPhone models and many other popular smartphones available today. The eyepiece clamp attaches to any telescope equipped with a standard 1.25" eyepiece - even to many spotting scopes, for daytime photography.

In addition to astrophotography applications, this versatile bracket is also great for showing others the view through your telescope, without having them peer into the eyepiece. Turn your smartphone into a crowd-pleasing mini display monitor for your telescope with the SteadyPix Universal Smartphone Photo Adapter to enjoy the live view as seen through your telescope on your smartphone's screen. It's a great way to enjoy views of the cosmos together!

Get into smartphone astrophotography today! It's easy with the affordable Orion SteadyPix Universal Smartphone Adapter.
