Description

Picture it!
For photography of the moon, planets and stars through an NG- or DS-model telescope using 1.25-inch eyepieces, this Meade variable-projection camera adapter is a versatile choice. It incorporates a machined, sliding mechanism that permits variable projection distances during eyepiece-projection photography. And this eliminates the need to switch to a higher-power eyepiece for additional enlargement. Two thumbscrews lock the sliding cell in position at the desired projection distance, and a third screw locks the eyepiece in position. A separable, thread-in unit also permits prime-focus photography.
All parts are of machined aluminum and brass. The 1.25-inch barrel is threaded for filters. Use with a T-Mount, ordered separately, for your brand of 35mm camera body.
CHOKING HAZARD - small parts may pose a risk to children under 6 yrs.

      Comments about Meade Variable Projection Camera Adapter 1.25 Inch:

      Alot of steps are taken along the Astrophotography road and this is one of them. Not the biggest step by far, but for me this Item has taken me from the Homemade/Whatever works level to the dont worry about how the camera is attached cause it's taken care of. A must have for anyone tired of point and shoot cameras and attachments of questionable stability

        As luck would have it, it has been cloudy almost every night since I have gotten this. We do need the rain however as it has been very dry. Looks to be a quality item and I am waiting to try it out.

        Comments about Meade Variable Projection Camera Adapter 1.25 Inch:

        This adapter does what it is supposed to do. It even allows a lens to be inserted. I use it with a rebel xt camera with great results. The slide is not intended for active use - place it and leave it. Focus is a bit difficult to get right, but that is the nature of astrophotography.

        Know what your doing.

        By Robert Johnson

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Meade Variable Projection Camera Adapter 1.25 Inch:

        I bought this thinking that it would be easy to take pictures of things I was seeing through the telescope through an eye piece. This is what this is for, but it is very difficult to get the focus just right. Great product, but I still haven't mastered it. But then again I am no astro-photographer either. Bottom line is it is great if you know how to use it or will dedicate time to learn it.
