Celestron Universal T-Adapter
Camera adapter for 1.25" focusers
Our take on the Celestron Universal T-Adapter by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The Celestron Universal T-Adapter connects a DSLR or SLR camera body to a telescope with a 1.25" focuser or eyepiece adapter installed, allowing short exposure images of terrestrial objects as well as celestial objects like the Moon. You can also create long exposure shots of deep sky objects with additional guiding equipment.
The T-threads on the top of the Universal T-Adapter screw into a T-Ring (sold separately) that is designed to attach to the brand-specific mounting flange of your camera. The barrel end of the T-Adapter slides into the focuser, just like an eyepiece, and locks into place with the focuser or eyepiece adapter thumbscrew.
What's in the Box:
- T-Adapter cylinder for 1.25" focuser/eyepiece with dust cap
- connects a DSLR or SLR camera to a refractor for prime focus photography
- chrome barrel slides into any focuser that accepts 1.25" accessories
- threads accept camera brand specific T-rings (sold separately)
- warranty: 2 years parts and labor
- Our 60-day money-back guarantee
Overview: The Celestron Universal T-Adapter is an accessory that allows you to attach an SLR or DSLR camera to the rear cell threads of a telescope with a 1.25" focuser or eyepiece adapter installed. You will also need the appropriate brand-specific T-Ring for Nikon or Canon cameras to complete the mounting process. Once you have the T-Adapter, T-Ring, camera, and telescope connected, you can take photos of terrestrial or large celestial objects like the Moon.
Description: The T-Adapter consists of a metal cylinder with a chrome tapered end that fits into a 1.25" focuser or eyepiece adapter. On the other end of the T-Adapter are threads that fit the Nikon or Canon T-Ring.
