Description

Get started with astrophotography with your Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope.  The Schmidt-Cassegrain's long telescope f/10 focal ratio makes them difficult to take long exposure photos with your DSLR Nikon or DSLR Canon EOS camera - that's why we included the Celestron f/6.3 focal reducer to make the telescope "faster" for optimum use for astrophotography. 

 

Simple to get started

To use, simply thread on the Focal Reducer to the rear-cell of the Celestron SCT telescope.  Followed by threading the T-Adapter onto the Focal-Reducer.  Finally, replace your cameras lens with either the Nikon or Canon EOS T-Ring to allow connection to the T-Adapter.

 

Great for use on Celestron CPC Telescopes

  • Works with Celestron CPC Telescopes
  • Celestron NexStar 5, 6 and 8 SE Telescopes
  • Advanced Series SCT Telescopes
  • Many other SCT Telescopes

 

Importance of a shutter-release cable

It is important to use a Shutter Release cable with your camera.  You will not want to take your exposures by pressing your shutter button on your camera body - this will produce vibration.  A remote shutter release cable was either included with your camera, or is easily available and inexpensive from any local camera store.

        Comments about Celestron DSLR Camera Attachment Kit for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes:

        Celestron's focal reducer really makes a huge difference when photographing objects such as the Orion Nebulae. Objects are brighter. The T-ring (canon eos) fits perfectly onto my Rebel T3. The T-Adapter allows me to attach my DSLR camera onto the back of my Celestron 6SE. All 3 items are a must have for astrophotography. The only thing I need now is a wedge so I can polar align my scope.

        Comments about Celestron DSLR Camera Attachment Kit for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes:

        As with all new telescope accessories, the skies turned cloudy and rainy the day I got this. It is the basic t-ring and t-adapter needed for prime focus photography. The focal reducer is the orange Celestron which has lots of positive reviews all over the internet. The kit price is not discounted, i.e. the price of the kit is the same as purchasing each piece separately. If don't need all three items then it may be more practical to purchase only the pieces you need.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I have always been pleased with Telescopes.com service.
