Take beautiful astrophotos through any telescope with your iPhone! With the Orion SteadyPix Telescope Photo Adapter for iPhone, anyone with a telescope and an iPhone can easily take stunning pictures of the night sky. 

The SteadyPix iPhone Photo Adapter securely couples an iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS, 3G, or original iPhone to a 1.25" telescope eyepiece so you can take high-magnification pictures through the telescope using the iPhone's built-in camera. The sturdy, steel adapter bracket allows the iPhone's camera lens to be positioned directly over the 1.25" telescope eyepiece eye lens for afocal eyepiece-projection photography. Since the iPhone camera is positioned right where your eye would be, it's easy for anyone to start taking pictures of night sky wonders, no matter how experienced or inexperienced you are in the hobby of astrophotography.

At night, capture high-resolution images of the Moon's cratered surface and take astrophotographic snapshots of bright and interesting planets like ringed Saturn and gigantic Jupiter. With practice and a bit of patience, you can even capture images of some bright deep-space objects and the International Space Station (really)!

The fun doesn't stop at sunrise either. Use the SteadyPix iPhone adapter during daylight hours with a refractor or Cassegrain telescope to take superb high-magnification snapshots of distant wildlife and scenery. With a properly sized solar filter attached to any telescope, you can take daytime snapshots of broiling sunspots on our nearest star with your iPhone.

Another great feature of the Orion SteadyPix Telescope Photo Adapter is how it lets you display a live view of the image projected by your telescope on your iPhone screen. Now you can share beautiful real-time views of the night sky with friends and family by using your iPhone as a mini telescope display monitor! No more lining up to wait for your chance to view, everyone can observe at the same time when using an attached iPhone as a cool mini display screen. The SteadyPix iPhone Photo Adapter can also attach your iPhone to a photo tripod for steady wide-field pictures without a telescope.

The Orion SteadyPix Telescope Photo Adapter for iPhone includes a felt-lined steel eyepiece clamp that fits standard 1.25" telescope eyepieces with housing diameters up to 1.5". A larger clamp for bigger eyepiece housings is sold separately (see suggested accessories).

For best results, you may need to remove your iPhone's protective case before installing in the SteadyPix Telescope Photo Adapter.

Not compatible with iPhone 5. For iPhone 5 users, we recommend our popular Orion SteadyPix Universal Smartphone Telescope Photo Adapter, which is compatible with the iPhone 5.
