Works well, now has me doing astrophotography!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron T Adapter/Barlow 1.25 Universal (Req. T-Ring) (Electronics)
There's not much to say about the adapter itself, it works and has me doing astro-photography! I thought it might be helpful to some if I demonstrate how it fits together with the camera and the telescope in a video.

Are you mounting on to a Celestron 127EQ PowerSeeker Telescope?

Couldn't tell you. I've had this telescope for about 10 years and it doesn't have a name on it, just the Celestron brand and the focal length. I don't use it as much since I moved to the Celestron CGEM 800, 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope.

what brand of the t-ring you have? Does it have a layer of glass in the t-ring? From the video you posted seems like it has a layer.

I've got two. One of them has a 2x barlow lens but they are really the same thing (I can unscrew the barlow from one and screw it into the other). The links for the products are below. The ring itself has no glass, only the one T-adapter.

THANK YOU for your video! Wow, that was helpful as I could not figure out why I needed both pieces. Thanks to your video I see why. Really, great job at keeping it simple. Do you happen to know if I can use the same set up to attach this to a microscope (one that accepts cameras, of course)? The microscope has an "industry standard 23mm photo port and C-mount port." I am guessing yes, but thought i would try you since you seem to have a handle on these accessories. Thanks again!

Can you show us a picture of the moon w/ the barlow in comparison w/ the other t-dapter? Does the barlow get you even closer?
Thanks for taking the time to make a video.

I will try to do it when weather permits. It's been nothing but clouds and rain for the past few weeks and I've not been able to take the scope out for a while.
The barlow does allow you to zoom in further to an object. I'm using a 2x barlow, though there exist barlows of other magnifications. For the smaller of my telescopes it is necessary because the focusing range on the scope doesn't allow an image to be made in focus without the barlow.

Take a look at the product images. You'll see a comparison of the picture with and without the Barlow. The with picture is slightly out of focus, but it should let you see what you needed to know.

Does this adapter set-up work on your new telescope?
In reply to an earlier post on May 23, 2013 4:41:39 AM PDT
It works fine. Though for the new telescope I've got some other mounting options too that I also use.
