Celestron Telescope T Camera Adapter with Barlow Lens
Celestron Telescope T Camera Adapter with Barlow Lens
Offered by PicStop
Price: 23.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Telescope adaptor, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am uncertain if this works with every lens that's out there, but it certainly fits easily in to my Celestron Astromaster 76EQ

I have attached the T2 adaptor to this, then my camera.. and with some camera practice in manual mode, have taken some really fantastic photos.

great product


Nikon HB-45 Lens Hood for AF-S 18-55mm Series Lens
Nikon HB-45 Lens Hood for AF-S 18-55mm Series Lens
Price: 13.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Lens hood, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Nikon Lens hood is well worth having in your equipment bag.
it is very robust, small and light piece of equipment-
and yes, it does assist in blocking out unnecessary sun glare.

I have only given it 4 stars because:
1) At the lowest focal lengths, ie around 18mm, the light from the built in flash will actually catch the top of the hood and create a shadow (in these lower focal lengths) at the bottom of your photo.
-- an attached flash however, such as a speed light, will work fine with it.
2) Unlike the size of the hood you get with the 55-300mm lens, this is quite a lot smaller.
I understand that it needs to do this, due to the smaller focal length- although it reduces sun glare, you only really get a few degrees to play with extra to reduce the glare.

despite this, dont let this review deter you- these are only very minor things
a lens hood is still a welcome addition to any kit.. and this nikon is very well made, so worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars great product, would recommend, 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite simply,

It is perfect for holding three DVD's.
It is sturdy,
has an outer plastic skin so you can add a cover if you wish,
clips inside, to add things like inserts.

great for when i send holiday snaps DVD to my cousins abroad, which can sometimes run on to 3 disks.

2.0 out of 5 stars think carefully before buying..., 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So, after careful consideration looking through everyone's reviews.
i went for these as they did have a high rating in general.

Unfortunately, not all of the ink cartridges work.
(in my case most of the cartridges- in particular BOTH magenta cartridges failed to work)
I tried everything that was recommended on here, and on You Tube-
such as cleaning the circuit connection, to turning it off to force the printer to recognise the cartridges.

But no such luck

With such a high approval rating, felt very disappointed.

In Conclusion, i guess it will all come down to luck more than anything..
so you may want to consider saving more money for proper Epson cartridges.

5 stars none the less, for speed of delivery

My Printer: Epson SX435W

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic item, lightning fast delivery., 23 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are a fantastic pair of binoculars for the price.
They were sent 2 days after order, and came the next day, which meant the whole process was quicker than amazons predictions by far.
even the person that delivered them was polite and pleasant.

most importantly, for those who are interested in buying these, they DO come with a case, strap, tripod adapter and a cleaning cloth- which is really good!
(as these are not noted by amazon on the product features)

would recommend to anyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying if you love plane spotting!, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fantastic book, for plane lovers who want to spot commercial airlines.

it is well laid out with a box next to each registry marking for your own notes (such as date you saw the aircraft for example)

the reason i have only given it 4 stars,
.is because although i can understand they have tried to get thousands of aircraft registrations into a smaller book as possible, the writing is very small
.i have already spotted a few aircraft that are not listed (which is strange because this book is supposed to be 2012- however there is a section in the book to write down this info)
.only details aircraft leaving and entering the UK

saying that, these are only very very minor things.

i would still recommend this book to anyone- (well, at least anyone who loves plane spotting anyway!)

5.0 out of 5 stars great value for money, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been making some Holiday snaps DVD's recently, and wanted to make them look more professional.

These boxes are fantastic

they are the standard DVD size (which to me is good, although they are big, they dont look odd against the rest of your dvd's)

but the best thing is that they are as strong as a standard DVD case (which means i wont worry when i send my dvd's to my family over seas)
and that it has the outside 'plastic wallet' and internal 'clips'- so that you can add a front and back cover, as well as an insert if you wanted to.

fantastic value for money!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic product, fantastic price....., 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
need i say any more?

I have now ordered 2 of these 16GB memory cards, one for a casio exilim, and a panasonic lumix.

there isnt to much to go wrong with them anyway,
but they work perfectly fine, the 'lock' does what it is supposed to.

16GB at a very low setting, such as 3M, will get you around 18000 pictures
a fairly high setting, such as 10M or widescreen setting, will get you around 6500 pictures.

but i was most taken back by how quick it came,
ordered it on a tuesday (standard amazon delivery, 3-5 days) and it got here on wednesday morning!

would recommend this to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you havent got this yet, why not?, 10 Mar 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
for the longest time, i have always wanted one of these-
but had not got one because i couldnt be certain if this will as good as everyone says it was.
i have just brought one and am now wishing i had brought this years ago!
the light and sound effects (as well as the motion sensors) are amazing- the unit is also very durable and sturdy.
the only problem i would say, is that as soon as i pick it up- i feel 6 years old and i cant put it down again :)

Well worth a buy to anyone, star wars fan or not

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny...., 27 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first, i was very aprehensive about buying this product...because let's face it- the last thing you want to do is risk putting your expensive camera into water- regardless of how good the product says it is!
But fear not! once i recieved the case- i gave it a few 'test runs' on none electrical items that i didnt mind getting wet- had no trouble! been using it on my camera ever since!
one thing worth noting, is that it is clear from the materials used, that you need to be able to take good care of it.
