I bought this to use with my Meade 102mm scope and Canon A540 Powershot. It clamps to the eyepiece firmly and adjusts to fit my camera. It has a massive amount of adjustment so it should fit a wide variety of cameras. Works very well.

I had to experiment to find the best mounting position and shooting method. I use a heavy Bogen video tripod which works well for this setup. A lighter tripod would not work well since there is a large amount of vibration at high magnification to deal with. Here is the method that works best for my scope and camera:

1- Remove the diagonal prism and place the eyepiece directly into the eyepiece holder (straight through viewing method). Tighten setscrew firmly.
2- Look through the eyepiece and focus the scope.
3- Clamp the adapter to the eyepiece.
4- Mount the camera then center the lens with the X and Y adjustment screws. Leave Z adjustment loose.
5- Very carefully zoom the lens to full telephoto while watching the distance to the eyepiece. Adjust the Z axis so the fully zoomed camera lens is not quite touching the scope eyepiece.
6- Leave the camera in auto focus mode. Turn off focus aid light.
7- Adjust zoom as necessary to obtain a good picture on the camera screen. The camera needs to be zoomed in quite a bit to avoid vignetting.
8- Re-focus the telescope as needed to obtain the sharpest camera view.
9- Use the timed shutter release mode to avoid blurring caused by vibrations. 10 seconds works great.

I read that this gadget was heavy, but I didn't believe it. It's made of plastic and aluminum, how heavy can it be? Well it weighs in at almost 15 ounces! At 8" long and 4-1/2" wide, it's built like a battleship.

Try and use this on a smaller telescope and you'll have quite a balancing chore to perform. It appears to be sized for an older generation of much larger cameras.

One good thing, the little L-shaped foot at the bottom is threaded like a camera, so if your camera and scope are light enough, just clamp them both to this behemoth and screw the adapter itself to the tripod.

If this were half the size and half the weight, it would be a winner. As it is, I can't imagine how I'll use it.

I've owned this Celestron 93626 Universal Digital Camera Adapter for two weeks. I used it for birding, digiscoping. It is solidly built but a bit too heavy (over balancing my Kowa 60mm scope). Also, it does NOT fit ultra compact cameras. My Canon SD800is is too small to work with this product. I assume that similarly sized cameras will also not work (3.5" x 2").

Amazon has great customer service and returns. So you may wish to try it out yourself.

My main reason for purchasing this device was to be able to do a variety of eyepiece astrophotography. I attempted to hook up one of my 2" eye pieces and a Sony Cyber Camera to this adapter and it won't work. The camera platform is too short in all vertical adjustments to bring the camera's lens dead center into the 2" eyepiece. Also I attempted to hook up my Sony camcorder and one of my 1-1/4" eye pieces and again - the platform was not deep enough on the horizontal plane to enable the camcorder's lens to see through the 1-1/4" eyepiece. The only way I can use this adapter with my digital Cyber Camera is to hook it up to a 1-1/4" eyepiece. This seems to work, but I did not buy the device to be used in only one configuration. I bought it in order to use it with various sizes of eyepieces and various types of video and camera equipment. Because of the limited use I give it three stars. Hopefully I will be able to machine some components that will enable me to use 2" eye pieces as well as my HD camcorder.

The unit is made with two main pieces, the clamp bracket and the camera mount base, let's start with the clamp. While this bracket is made of metal (appears to be die cast aluminum) it is poorly designed and manufactured. The sliding "V" clamp is wide (1-1/8") and screws down to hold the whole assembly to the scope but it's loose in its bracket so it cocks sideways and jams while trying to attach it to the scope. And it is too large for easy use on smaller scopes, -1 star (You can almost fit a 2-1/2" tube in it!). It can physically interfere with your mount when the scope is pointed up for high sky shots. This makes it virtually useless on a MEADE ETX or similar mount scope. The one I received was defective in that the threads for the clamp screw were completely stripped out. Not a fluke, there are other reviews citing this defect. -2 stars. I should have realized the size problems from the pictures but the stripped thread is just shoddy quality control.
Now for the camera mount base; it's plastic, 1/4" thick rigid honeycomb base with 2 slots for the camera mount screw, not too bad. This will accommodate different size cameras but not everything. Camcorders and SLR's will likely be too big for direct clamping to scope. 2-1/2" max from eyepiece clamp to camera mount screw. It has separate X and Y axis adjusting screws for centering the camera in the eyepiece (no Z). Has a single screw on a metal clamp that locks both axis. One axis screw has an easily accessed knob for adjusting but the other is inset in the end of the clamp bracket making it awkward to adjust. The base can be adjusted in to 1-1/4" from the center of a 2" tube and about 3/4" to the center of a 1-1/4" tube. That will work for some fairly small digital cameras. It has about 2" of adjustment out from there.
