4.0 out of 5 stars Great!
After a long while of thinking about it I finally got this Meade telescope adapter for my Canon 550D and Meade ETX 80 telescope. The item arrive well packaged and in good time. It's made of anodised metal and feel pretty solid in the hand. Installation was easy (it only fits one way) but attaching the camera to the adapter via a T-adapter was a little more tricky...

3.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin but....
It is ludicrously expensive for what it is. It really shouldn't cost more than a few pounds. It is a tiny - I think - plastic collar that has a double thread to attach to the telescope and also to your cameras mount adaptor.

Like I say it functions perfectly but the price is ridiculous.

After a long while of thinking about it I finally got this Meade telescope adapter for my Canon 550D and Meade ETX 80 telescope. The item arrive well packaged and in good time. It's made of anodised metal and feel pretty solid in the hand. Installation was easy (it only fits one way) but attaching the camera to the adapter via a T-adapter was a little more tricky.

Not had much opportunity to try it out yet, but have been able to covert the telescope into an approx 600-700mm F5 telephoto lens. I've managed some close ups of birds at a feeder in the garden, although the relatively shallow depth of field is problematic as far as focusing on moving subjects is concerned. I imagine that for astronomical objects (not generally known for their speed of movement through the sky) focusing would be easier.

My only gripe (and a very minor one) is that the camera generally ends up at a slight angle relative to the view down the barrel of the telescope. However straightening the image is usually a simple matter in Photoshop or other image processing software.
