Smartphone cameras are awesome, but their tiny lenses only zoom digitally. Because digital zooming increases the pixels size, not the amount of pixels, the resulting images lack detail and clarity. With Snapzoom, you can use a wide variety of optical devices like binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes, and microscopes as accessory lenses for your smartphone. These devices magnify with high quality glass lenses, and produce sharp, clear photos and videos at your smartphone’s highest resolution.

It does take some a small amount of time to get acquainted with alignment - more time on the Telescope. However, when you nail down the process it takes a less than a minute to connect.
So beware of the glowing reviews, here is the actual info:
Low quality - parts weren't even tight everything rattled around just out of the box, not what I expected at this price
Design isn't ideal, nor compact - It is awkward and inconvenient to adjust for each phone, esp. that you have to use a little screwdriver to make adjustments. The little screwdriver is just asking to get lost. When there are thumb screws instead, they are very tiny and hard to grip/adjust. It's also very bulky and oddly shaped to carry around with you. The carry case is very cheap, just a thin plastic bag. The counterweight concept does work, but I don't want to carry a metal stick and a weighted ball around with me. The side clamps are very long which means they tend to hit a lot of side buttons, then I have to play with foam to fix it.
The idea of an adapter for this purpose is a cool idea, and I was really excited to take pictures through my phones on different optics, and I think there are better solutions out there. So I agree with other reviewers that the execution of this idea and its overall design/quality is poor. Also, once you have it in your hand in reality, not just online, the actual quality and design do not seem to live up to the supposed hype.
for use with my telescope...found a couple on internet...
was going to buy one when i decided to check amazon....
i made a spelling error and snapzoom popped up...
no reveiws yet so i went to there website...very good

once you get the phones camera centered in eye piece...
just pop it into telescope and focus it...start snapping photos.
got a couple of really nice photos of the last lunar and solar
eclipses and some really nice close ups of the large sunspots..
then i put on my 15x70 binos...all i can say is WOW!!!!talk about
telephoto lens...easy to put on binos...I need to get a better tri-pod
so I can use my big binos...you can't go wrong....I'm totally happy
I stumbled onto snapzoom...works with 4s and 5s Iphones....was able to use
1.25" and 2" eyepieces.....wish i new how to post pictures on here..truly amazing....
Using it on the binoculars, where both sides of the clamps are secured, it seemed to hold in place. It took quite a bit of tinkering with it to get the phone positioned right, but it worked. However, it does lose its alignment quite easily walking a bit and viewing various objects. Keep in mind, I held it carefully since my phone was attached, even then it would shift.
So then I tried it on my telescope, where only one side of the clamp will secure on to the eye piece. This is where the problems started. Due to the extremely poor quality of the plastic and metal used in the adapter, by clamping only one side of the adapter on the eye piece, the rest of it began to flex. I had to regularly tighten the clamp as it would flex / bend and begin to slide. I was afraid it was going to break so I put it back in the box and returned it to Amazon.
If this was made out of quality materials, where it didn't flex and bend (i.e. quality metal, not the cheap China metal) then it would have been worth paying about $50.00. In its current state, It is NOT worth paying $20.00, let alone $75.00.
I would have given it 1 star but I thought I'd give them credit for the design.
