The SteadyPix Quick Smartphone Telescope Photo Adapter by Orion lets you share snapshots of your stargazing sessions quickly and easily from your telescope to any smartphone! This inexpensive adapter provides the stability you need to take great pictures of the view through your telescope with your smartphone's built-in camera.
Even the largest modern smartphone models work wonderfully with the SteadyPix Quick Photo Adapter. The rubber-lined phone clamp portion of the adapter can accommodate smartphones as small as 2.125-inches wide to as large as 3.75-inches wide, without scratching. The SteadyPix Quick's twist-lock eyepiece clamp fits telescope, binocular, spotting scope, and even microscope eyepieces ranging from 25 mm to 45 mm in diameter (.984-inches to 1.77-inches). The cleverly designed, self-centering eyepiece clamp makes secure installation quick and easy.
Capture stable snapshots of the view seen through your telescope with Orion’s SteadyPix Quick as it provides a secure connection between your smartphone and a telescope eyepiece. To take well-focused photos through a telescope eyepiece, the camera lens must be held exactly parallel with the eyepiece lens, and the smartphone must be held perfectly still so as not to blur the image. As you can imagine, it's almost impossible to take good pictures through a telescope while holding a phone's camera lens up to an eyepiece by hand. Even the most steady-handed stargazer will find it difficult to avoid shaky, blurred images.
The easy-to-use SteadyPix Quick takes the shakes and frustration out of the equation by providing an adjustable platform that holds your smartphone in the proper position above the eyepiece lens. Now you or anyone with a smartphone to capture can consistently capture clear, well-framed photos of the view through your telescope. After taking a snapshot, you can easily share pictures taken through your telescope with friends and family via text, email or social media.
You can also attach the SteadyPix Quick to a tripod-mounted binocular or spotting scopeeyepiece to take magnified pictures of daytime targets like colorful birds, wildlife, and scenery. You can even attach your smartphone to a microscope eyepieceusing the SteadyPix Quick. A built-in .25-inch/ 20 threaded socket allows direct attachment to tripods and monopods.
Now you can share the sky with more than one person at a time by using any smartphone as a viewing platform.
Made of sturdy ABS thermoplastic with a rubber-lined smartphone clamp, the adapter weighs just three ounces.
Note: For the best results, we recommend removing any bulky phone cases or bumpers before attaching your smartphone to the adapter.
