* Useful for either prime-focus or eyepiece-projection photography with refractors or reflectors
* Slides into telescope focuser; has T-threads for attachment of camera body
* Allows you to vary the magnification without changing the eyepiece
* Requires T-ring, sold separately, to fit your brand of camera


The 1.25" Variable Universal Camera Adapters allow attachment of a camera body to reflector and refractor telescopes for either prime-focus or telescope eyepiece-projection photography (hence the term "universal"). The adapter slides into the eyepiece holder as an eyepiece normally would.

This universal adapter is composed of two detachable parts: a prime-focus adapter (or "T-adapter") for prime-focus photography, and a fixed-length or variable extension tube for eyepiece-projection photography. A thumbscrew in the extension tube holds the telescope eyepiece in place.

This combination of prime-focus and eyepiece-projection camera adapter has a sliding barrel design that allows variable projection distances. This allows for slight changes in magnification without swapping telescope eyepieces when performing eyepiece-projection photography. Fits reflector and refractor telescopes with 1.25" eyepiece holders.

This Variable-Power Universal Camera Adapter is precision made of black-anodized aluminum and is compatible with 1.25" telescope focusers and many 1.25" telescope eyepieces (some eyepieces have housing diameters that are too large to fit inside the adapter). The barrel of the adapter is threaded for filters. A T-ring for your specific camera model (sold separately) is required to couple your camera body to the universal adapter.

For Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, a T-adapter (5116) or tele-extender (5127) are recommended instead, because their threaded fittings provide a more secure coupling of the camera to the telescope.
