Meade Basic Camera Adapter - 1.25"
Want to take pictures of the moon and planets through your telescope? The Meade Basic Camera Adapter is the simplest way to get started. It attaches to your telescope by sliding into either the 1.25" focuser or eyepiece holder, and then your SLR or DSLR camera attaches to the other end of the adapter via a T-Mount (sold separately) made specifically for your camera brand (Nikon, Canon, etc.).
An appropriate eyepiece is inserted into the barrel of the Meade 1.25" Basic Camera Adapter and locked down snuggly by turning the thumbscrew, and the magnified image of the object is projected onto the camera film plane. This is called "eyepiece projection" photography, and it is lots of fun.
Remember to buy a nice cable release for your camera if you don't have one...the more magnification, the more small vibrations and movements will affect the photo.
