VariMax Pro-Series 1.25" Variable Eyepiece Projection DSLR Camera Adapter for Telescopes
If you have been shopping for an Eyepiece Projection adapter you probably
noticed they all have a few things in common.. they only hold small eyepieces
with an upper body diameter of 1.5" or less. This limits you to a 25 or 26mm
plossl eyepiece. They also have no means of easily determining the projection
length, this can be frustrating if you want repeatability or like to record
all your equipment settings. All of that is just fine for your average amateur
astronomer taking a few pictures now and then. But if you take your
astrophotography seriously have a look at the Pro-Series VariMax projection
adapter. VariMax is the largest variable eyepiece projection adapter in
production.. anywhere. It's so large a standard eyepiece projection adapter
fits inside it! You can now use your larger more expensive 1.25" eyepieces,
all the way up to 2.5" in upper body Diameter and 3.5" in upper body Height!
The laser engraved scale enables you to easily record the projection length
for repeatability with confidence. In its standard configuration the VariMax
will directly fit onto any male T-Mount or into a 1.25" eyepiece port. Add the
optional ($24.95) 2" barrel for direct connection to 2" eyepiece ports without
the need for reducing adapters. The upper body has an extra wide machine
knurled grip ring for a sure grip even in the worst dew conditions. The lower
barrel is equipped with a safety undercut to help protect your equipment from
a loose eyepiece port retention screw. We kept the internal eyepiece port low
profile, so VariMax requires no more back focus than a standard projection
adapter. VariMax is also versatile, in addition to eyepiece projection you can
use this adapter in various other configurations. See the "Setup Diagram"
above, it shows how VariMax connects to various telescope types as well as any
additional parts that may be needed. NOT FOR USE ON SPOTTING SCOPES! NEW 2"
Version also available.
