Bought a Baader 2" diagonal and found I could not bring my crosshair eyepiece to focus. It was sugested by someone on Cloudy Nights that I try this adapter. Wow! it is the best. It is my primary now. Easy to change and complements the Click lock of t...

Inexpensive, Low Profile Camera Adapter
I knew I didn't have much back focus, so I chose this adapter. It works fine, but I was right about the back focus; I don't have enough, even with this piece, but it didn't cost much to find this out.

Quality Construction, Total Functionality
Finally somebody made a Great Adapter for my Olympus C-740 camera AND it works with 2" Eyepieces! Sturdy aluminum construction! Plenty of room for a much, much larger camera, even an SLR! Once you got this unit adjusted for your camera all you have t...

Must have for eyepiece projection
You will need this to adapt your Baader eyepiece for projecting magnified images onto your CCD for astronomical photography. It screws on the eye lens end and adapts to T-2 threads for attaching extension tubes between the eyepiece and your CCD came...

A must have for astro photography
This may be the best and most useful piece of equipment if you're wanting to do astrophotography. Focusing accuracy can now be measured instead of estimated. In two minutes I can achieve pinpoint stars, instead of spending 10-15 fine tuning and try...

Great product
Bought to mount a Canon A710IS to my Celestron Nexstar 114GT. Haven't been able to use it for astrophotography yet but it works great for terrestrial photos. It would seem to have a nearly infinite number of adjustments. It even came with some spare ...

Best accesory for astrophotography
I don't know how I imaged before this product. My photography gear is stable as a rock and centered at the focuser. If you unscrew the camera from the adapter then at the next imaging session, provided you have accurate polar alignment, then image ro...

Really surprised.
Great product. Tried a lot of cheap chinese t-mounts and fittings before with a lot of bad threads, poor finishes, etc., and was expecting something similar. What a surprise, clean threads, perfect finish, works great. Excelent product overall.

Very good especially for collimation
This device allows accurate centering which is particularly useful when using a laser collimator. Conventional thumbscrew adapters have a small amount of play leading to difficulty in getting the collimator square with the focuser. This translates ...

OK if you're not wanting to use filters
I bought this to mount a DSLR (Nikon D80) onto a Meade 10" SCT. The construction and design are great. It will definitely keep your camera attached to the scope with a t-ring. However, it is not threaded for filters of any kind. So, I'm returning...

Good product that does as advertised
Works very well. The brightness can be adjusted from bright to a very low level which is nice when your eyes are dark adapted. Conventional reticle illuminators are way to bright even at the lowest setting and this one is a big improvement on that....

No more trial and error!
Focusing a telescope on faint stars, nebulae, or galaxies is more often an art than a science. It's incredibly hard to judge whether your scope is perfectly focused or just mostly focused. With a Bahtinov Mask, there's now a quick and easy way to m...

Very good product for the price
Good product by agena. Another must have for video astronomy work. Threads right into the front of the sammy 435, then into the scope and you are set.
I would recommend this product and have.
