The
Celestron NexYZ Smart Phone Adaptor 3-Axis

This
item can connect your smartphone to your telescope, spotting scope, binocular,
monocular, or microscope so you can capture images and video through the
eyepiece.

NexYZ fits any eyepiece from 35
mm to 60 mm in diameter including telescopes with 1.25” and 2” eyepieces,
spotting scopes, monocular, and binoculars. NexYZ will also attach to
microscopes with the addition of the included adapter rings, which takes the
usable diameter down to 25 mm, the size of a standard microscope eyepiece. A
strong spring and a threaded twist lock nut provide a strong and secure grip on
the optical instrument’s eyepiece so you can image with confidence.

NexYZ also accommodates a huge
range of mobile smartphones. The mobile phone platform is fully adjustable and
can fit any device—usually with the case still on. Even larger “phablets” like
the iPhone 8 Plus and latest Samsung Galaxy devices work perfectly. The secure
platform stands up to the weight of these heavier devices with ease.

If multiple people want to
capture a shot through your optic, NexYZ’s simple spring-loaded clamps make it
easy to remove one device and replace it with another in seconds. NexYZ is the
ideal solution for star parties and group bird walks where everyone wants their
own shot of the action.

Easy as X-Y-Z

What makes NexYZ different from
other smartphone adapters? The three-axis adjustment. Most adapters rely on you
placing your mobile perfectly on the platform and only offer limited adjustment
in two axes. But NexYZ gives you the power to place your mobile on the
platform, center it over the eyepiece with the X and Y knobs, and then adjust
up or down over the eyepiece until you have the entire field of view in your
shot.

Even though this adjustment is
ultra-precise, it’s still quicker and easier than with other adapters. From
start to finish, the process only takes about 30 seconds, including the time it
takes to insert the phone into NexYZ, attach NexYZ to an eyepiece, start the
camera app, and center the camera over the eyepiece using the knobs. If you
switch phones, eyepieces, or optical instruments, you will need only slight
adjustments to re-center the camera over the new eyepiece.

You can also switch your image
from portrait to landscape simply by turning the padded eyepiece clamp and
readjusting the X, Y, and Z axis to realign your phone with the eyepiece.

NOTE: NexYZ fits telescopes, spotting scopes,
binoculars, monoculars, and microscopes. It will not fit riflescopes. NexYZ
will work with most phone cases, but if you have an especially large phone case
with built-in batteries or a folio style case, Celestron recommends removing it
for optimal use.
