Smart Phone Camera Adapter for 1.25″ Eyepieces

Explore Scientific Smart Phone Camera Adapter for 1.25″ Eyepieces

Have you ever tried to take a picture of the Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, or another object with your Smartphone by holding it up to the eyepiece? Most often, the image is blurry.

It comes out lousy because it is hard to hand-hold the camera in position without inadvertently moving during the exposure. The Explore Scientific Smartphone Camera Adapter is an inexpensive and easy to use solution! It works with any Smartphone and fits 1.25″ eyepieces. Suits just about any phone !!!

Easy To Fit

All you have to do is attach the adapter to the eyepiece via a set-screw, and then place your phone in position on the soft, non-abrasive platform. This base is composed of 35 soft silicon suction cups to hold your phone securely once you position the lens of the camera directly over the eyepiece. It works great for terrestrial imaging through a telescope, too. Genius! Thanks to High Point Scientific

Cam 2

Your smart phone sticks to the Camera Adapter – simple and fast.

I have used this and can tell you it it is the easiest product on the market to use and get results from. It takes only a few seconds to position your phone, hold it fast…and is easily moveable form phone to phone. The quality of te image is impressive and of course, relies on the quality of your smartphone cam.

Multiple Uses

We use this in the field for our visitors and it’s a BIG hit on sunny days when doing solar astronomy. The cost is ridiculous…$14.95… go order two or three from Explore Scientific. We did! This has gotta be the coolest thing going for those who just wanna point and shoot..without all the guess work and blurry results.
