Our take on the Celestron T-Adapter by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
This universal T-adapter turns your Schmidt-Cassegrain type telescope into a giant telephoto lens for your DSLR camera. The adapter is threaded to accept a camera brand-specific T-ring (sold separately), so you can match your telescope to the exact lens size your camera uses. It's the ideal accessory for capturing sharp, clear images of the night sky.
What's in the Box:
- T-Adapter cylinder
- Screw-on ring
- attaches DSLR camera to a telescope for prime focus photography
- threaded for mounting to the rear cell of Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes
- compatible with camera brand-specific T-Rings (sold separately)
- warranty: 2 years parts and labor
- Our 60-day money-back guarantee
Overview: The Celestron T-Adapter is an accessory that allows you to attach an SLR or DSLR camera to the rear cell threads of a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. 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 black metal cylinder with a threaded ring. The flanged end attaches to the telescope in place of the diagonal and visual back. The threaded ring holds the T-Adapter securely to the telescope. On the other end of the T-Adapter are threads that fit the Nikon or Canon T-Ring.
