Orion SteadyPix Camera Mount
Orion SteadyPix Universal Digital & Film Camera Mount. Couples Camera to Telescope for Through-the-Eyepiece Photos!
This nifty device holds virtually any digital or film camera up to the eyepiece of any telescope to capture images of the Moon, planets, bright deep-sky objects, or terrestrial subjects. An improvement over existing designs, SteadyPix locks the camera lens in position at just the right distance and orientation relative to the eyepiece to achieve precise focus and centering of the image for afocal photography.
SteadyPix features all-metal construction for maximum rigidity. It attaches directly to any standard 1.25" telescope eyepiece with one of two felt-lined eyepiece clamps provided (for standard or large-size 1.25" eyepieces). The camera threads on to a 1/4"-20 pedestal via the threaded hole in the camera body. There are no additional parts to buy as with some other models. SteadyPix's three adjustment points let you position any brand of digital or 35mm camera close to the eyepiece for picture taking. Looking at the camera's viewscreen or through its viewfinder, you then focus the image and snap the shot!
Eyepieces with long eye relief are recommended to minimize vignetting of images. Our Lanthanum series eyepieces are ideal (standard series, not Superwides). Fits 1.25" eyepieces only.
Why not give through-the-telescope photography a try? The results may surprise you.
