Universal 1.25 inch T-Adapter
Introducing the Universal 1.25 inch T-Adapter
The Celestron Universal T-Adapter connects a DSLR or SLR camera to a refractor for prime focus photography. The chrome barrel on the adapter slides into any focuser that is compatible with 1.25 inch accessories. The T-threads on this adapter accept camera-specific T-Rings (sold separately), allowing you to attach a variety of camera bodies.
Attach Your T-Adapter
The Universal T-Adapter hosts it’s T-threads on the top and screw into a T-Ring (sold separately) that is designed to attach to the brand-specific mounting flange on your camera. The barrel end of the T-Adapter will then slide into the focuser, similar to an eyepiece, and lock into place with the focuser or eyepiece thumbscrew.
What is Prime Focus Photography?
Prime focus photography is a popular technique for short exposure images of terrestrial objects as well as celestial objects like the Moon. With larger telescopes, it’s possible to view and photograph dimmer sky objects as night. The most challenging piece to prime focus photography is getting the exposure right. Once this has been accomplished, producing beautiful images is easy.
Top Customer Reviews
In either case you still need a T-Ring to connect to your camera, be careful there too as there are now ones for 58mm digital cameras that are larger than the older 35mm.
Getting Amazon to change these descriptions is difficult so hopefully this review can correct it.
There are a few fixes for this. First, check the focuser on the scope to see if the eyepiece holder will unscrew and allow you to screw the camera's adapter directly to it. If not, you can purchase a 2x barlow (Celestron item # 93640) that includes a T-adaptor on it or a zoom lens with threads for a filter that will also allow you to directly attach your camera adapter such as Celestron's 8mm - 24mm item # 93230. Obviously, including a lens in the equation magnifies the image which you may or may not want.
The most expensive and intrusive is to replace the focuser with an aftermarket focuser that will allow this to work.
Other than the fact that it was not directly compatible with my scope, the quality of the T adapter was very good which is typical for Celestron products.
Highly recommend this as a cheap way to venture into astrophotography.
