Home-brewed Camera Adapter

A universal camera adapter allows any camera to be attached to a telescope or binoculars. This adapter was built in 2008 and still in use today.

This imaging method is called afocal imaging, in which a camera with its lens is mounted next to another image-forming optical system such as a telescope with an eyepiece or a pair of binoculars.

  1. I was just exploring the idea of using my Meade telescope for astrophotography. It is quite hard to look for an adapter that will fit on my Panasonic LX3.I don’t have any idea on other adapters available so I tried this for curiosity sake.It is quite useful and easy to use for my early needs.

    I still use this from time to time.
