Our take on the Celestron T-Adapter

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.

  • threaded for mounting to the rear cell of Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes
  • compatible with camera brand-specific T-Rings (sold separately)

Hands-on research

Product Research


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.
