Meade T-Adapter for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes
- Adapter for prime focus photography
- Threads to the rear cell of the telescope directly without use of an eyepiece holder
- Compatible with all Meade LS, LX90, and LX200 models
- Provides standard male 42mm t-threads for camera/t-ring attachment
This Meade T-Adapter is a Schmidt-Cassegrain style telescope adapter for prime focus photography. Compatible with all Meade LS, LX90 and LX200 models including ACF and older Schmidt-Cassagrain designs which have a standard Schmidt-Cassegrain type rear cell thread.
The T-Adapter threads to the rear cell of the telescope directly without use of an eyepiece holder. Output is a standard photographic T-thread (male) to which many imaging devices including the Meade DSI will thread directly. For film based SLR cameras a T-ring is required, ordered separately for your DSLR camera brand.
The appropriate optional T-ring will thread onto the universal threads of the T-Adapter on one side and has the bayonet-mount unique to the user's brand of DSLR camera on the other side. In this way the camera body is rigidly coupled to the telescope's optical system, which in effect becomes the camera's lens.
