- Allows attachment of 35mm SLR camera to the prime focus of your telescope
- Great for terrestrial, short exposure lunar and planetary photography
- Use with separate guide-scope for long exposure deep-sky photography
- Fits any type of telescope that uses a 1.25-inch focus or visual back
- Both a T-Adapter and T-Ring are required to mount camera
Preserve your observation of the celestial bodies with the Universal T-Adapter from Celestron!
Engineered for excellent performance and ease-of-use, the T-Adapter
enables you to attach a DSLR or SLR camera to a telescope with a 1.25”
focuser or eyepiece adapter installed. The Adapter works by screwing
its T-threads into a T-Ring (sold separately) which is designed to
attach to your camera’s mounting flange. The barrel end of the T-Adapter
then slides into the focuser and locks in place with the adapter
thumbscrew. Once configured, the telescope with the Adapter attachment
can be used for terrestrial photography as well as short exposure lunar
and planetary photography. With the use of a guide scope (sold
separately), the Universal T-Adapter can also be used for long exposure
deep sky photography. The Adapter is compatible with any type of
telescope that uses a 1.25-inch focuser or visual back. To complete the
assembly of the telescope and the Adapter, a camera-specific T-ring is
With the Celestron T-Adapter, make your stargazing experience last forever!
The Celestron Universal T-Adapter connects a DSLR or SLR camera body
to a telescope with a 1.25” focuser or eyepiece adapter installed. The
T-threads on the top of the Universal T-Adapter screw into a T-Ring
(sold separately) that is designed to attach to the brand-specific
mounting flange of your camera. The barrel end of the T-Adapter slides
into the focuser, just like an eyepiece, and locks into place with the
focuser or eyepiece adapter thumbscrew.
Please note that some telescopes, especially “fast” refractors and
most Newtonians, may not have enough focus travel to allow the
photographic image to come to focus when used in prime focus mode. In
these instances, we recommend using the Universal Barlow & T-Adapter
(#93640), which will double the magnification, but will allow the
telescope to reach focus.
Prime focus photography is popular for short exposure images of terrestrial objects as well as celestial objects like the Moon.
