      Comments about Meade Piggyback Bracket:

      Since purchasing a 10" Meade telescope, I have been looking for a piggyback bracket for my camera. They were out of stock everywhere. I ordered from Telescopes.com after I found out that they would be getting these back in stock in around 2 weeks. As soon as they had them, it was on its way to me. It fits and works just as it should. Very pleased!

          Excellent Product, mounts easily on the top of the scope. Let the camera track right along with the scope.

          Overall poor design

          About Me Professional Guide

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Easy to Install
          • Fairly lightweight
          • Strong Construction

          Cons

          • Adapter too short
          • Poor Fit

          Best Uses

          • Astronomy

          Comments about Meade Piggyback Bracket:

          The 1/4 - 20 adapter is much too short to adequately attach my digital rebel. To make it fit, I had to install the Orion 2-axis tripod mount on the short adapter, and *then* attach the DSLR. Considering this adapter is an inexpensive part, this is a gross oversight by Meade.
