Description

Picture it!

For photography of the moon, planets and stars through a telescope using 1.25-inch eyepieces, this Saxon variable-projection camera adapter is a versatile choice. It incorporates a machined, sliding mechanism that permits variable projection distances during eyepiece-projection photography. And this eliminates the need to switch to a higher-power eyepiece for additional enlargement. Two thumbscrews lock the sliding cell in position at the desired projection distance, and a third screw locks the eyepiece in position. A separable, thread-in unit also permits prime-focus photography.

All parts are of machined aluminum and brass. The 1.25-inch barrel is threaded for filters. Use with a T-Ring (ordered separately), for your brand of 35mm camera body

For something that allows you to use your existing 1.25inch eye-lenses with a camera, this is as good as it gets whilst not being too bulky.

The Saxon 1.25"variable projection camera adaptor was delivered as promised when ordered. I have used the adaptor a few times since it arrived and it allowed me to photograph the 1/4 moon with my Canon dslr camera attached. I am very happy that i purchased the adaptor.g

This item seems to do the job fine, it is a sturdy metallic construction, my only annoyance with it, is once you have an eyepiece in it can be a struggle dismantling it to get it out. Especially if it has a rubber ring around the eyepiece.

FAQ

Q:
Can I use this with my Atik CCD camera which has a 1.25inch nose piece?
A:
We believe that it will work. The item described will generally fit 1.25 inch eyepieces. If you purchase the product and it does not fit, we do have a 30-day return and we can offer you a full refund or exchange on the product. For more information on our returns guideline you can visit: http://www.ozscopes.com.au/returns/
Q:
Can this adapter be used with a Barska spotting scope to attach a Nikon DSLR? Can the zoom on the spotting scope eyepiece still be used when the adapter is attached?
A:
Unfortunately, the Saxon variable Eyepiece Projection Camera Adapter - 1.25" is designed for telescopes and will not actually work with a spotting scope. Generally, if you want to take photos with your spotting scope, the DSLR camera plus T-Ring is the best solution. You can use your zoom eyepiece with the camera if you can remove the rubber bit on the eyepiece to expose a thread which will take a T-ring adapter.
Q:
I am considering purchasing the Saxon Variable Eyepiece Projection Camera Adapter - 1.25", for my Celestron 130slt. Will this allow me to take better pictures than using my current setup of a t-ring adaptor and 2x barlow connected directly to my DSLR?
A:
The Saxon Variable Eyepiece Projection Camera Adapter will allow you to get a longer focal length than what the 2x barlow lens does, and it will also be more variable to suit your needs - hence better pictures. However, it wouldn't be recommended for you to use the adapter along with the Barlow lens as that restricts a lot of light coming through and the images seen through will not be as bright.
