About this product
Take pictures of the starry skies with your own camera through a telescope!
While observing the Moon or bright planets, have you ever thought to yourself: "If only I had a way to connect my digital camera to my telescope"? You can do just that with the Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount. This easy-to-use camera mount lets you securely attach a "point-and-shoot" camera to an eyepiece held in a telescope focuser. The Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount provides an amazingly affordable way to begin taking impressive pictures of the Moon, bright planets, Sun (with a properly fitting telescope solar filter), and terrestrial subjects through your telescope. SteadyPix Deluxe also lets you precisely position the attached camera in relation to the telescope eyepiece so you can optimize the quality and sharpness of your photos. Anyone who's tried to hand-hold a camera up to a telescope eyepiece will greatly appreciate the ingenious SteadPix Deluxe Camera Mount and its stable design!
The Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount securely couples just about any "point-and-shoot" digital camera to a telescope eyepiece, and allows adjustment to achieve precise focus and centering for afocal photography through the telescope. The rubber-lined telescope eyepiece clamp helps prevent any marring or damage to your telescope eyepieces. This versatile mount offers three dimensions of adjustment (horizontal, vertical, and depth) to accomodate almost any camera size or lens position. You can even rotate the camera away from the telescope eyepiece for visual access, without having to remove the SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount, which is immensely helpful when fine-tuning focus on celestial targets.
The Orion SteadyPix Deluxe fits all Orion 1.25" telescope eyepieces and most 2" telescope eyepieces (up to 61mm in eyepiece housing diameter). It also features a sturdy all-metal design for superior rigidity and performance.
If you've got the desire to dabble in astrophotography, the Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount is a great way to get started without breaking the bank! Weighs just 10 oz.
