Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount
- Securely holds virtually any camera up to an eyepiece for afocal photography of celestial objects
While observing the Moon or planets, have you ever thought to yourself: "If only I had a way to connect my digital camera to my telescope"? Now you can! The ingenious, easy-to-use Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount provides an amazingly affordable way for anyone to begin capturing impressive images of the Moon, planets, Sun (with a proper filter), and terrestrial objects.
The SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount securely couples just about any "point-and-shoot" digital camera, SLR (single lens reflex), or DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera to a telescope eyepiece, and allows adjustment to achieve precise focus and centering for a focal photography. The rubber-lined 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.
The SteadyPix Deluxe has been improved to fit all 1.25" telescope eyepieces and most 2" telescope eyepieces (up to 61mm in diameter). It also features a sturdier all-metal design for increased rigidity and performance. So if you've got the desire to dabble in astrophotography, the Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount is a great way to get started!
