4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ This Meade Basic Camera Adaptor has been fully tested and serviced by our team of camera experts and works like new. There are some signs of previous use, but what fun is a rental if you don’t use it? Any signs of previous use are minor and superficial and there are no notable marks or scratches. All the photos to the left are of the item you would receive so you can see for yourself (yes, we really have someone downstairs photographing every preloved product).

For astrophotography or imaging using eypiece projection photography.

The Basic Camera Adapter accepts an eyepiece that will project an enlarged image to the camera or imager such as a Meade DSI. A 1.25″ eyepiece is typically inserted into the body of the Basic Camera Adapter, typically in the 15mm to 32mm focal length range. The resulting effective focal ratio is then determined by the eyepiece used.

For digital or film SLR type cameras a T-Mount is additionally required. The Basic Camera Adapter permits a rigid coupling of the camera to any telescope with a 1.25″ eyepiece holder. The T-mount threads onto the universal threads of the T-Adapter on one side and has the bayonet-mount unique to the user’s brand of 35mm camera on the other side. In this way the camera body is rigidly coupled to the telescope’s optical system, which in effect becomes the camera’s lens.
