digital or film camera up to the eyepiece of a telescope to capture

directly to any standard telescope eyepiece with one of two felt-lined
eyepiece clamps provided (for standard 1-1/4" or large-size (1-5/8" -
1-3/4") eyepieces). The camera threads on to a 1/4"-20 pedestal via the
threaded hole in the camera body. There are no additional parts to buy
as with some other models. SteadyPix's three adjustment points let you
position any brand of digital or 35mm camera close to the eyepiece for
picture taking. Looking at the camera's view-screen or through its
viewfinder, you then focus the image and snap the shot!
Telescope eyepieces with long eye relief are recommended to minimize vignetting of images.
