Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount

While observing the Moon or planets, have you ever thought to yourself: 'If only I had a way to connect my digital camera to my telescope'? Now you can! The ingenious, easy-to-use Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount provides an amazingly affordable way for anyone to begin capturing impressive images of the Moon, planets, Sun (with a proper filter), and terrestrial objects.

The Orion SteadyPix Deluxe securely couples just about any "point-and-shoot" digital camera, SLR, or DSLR camera to a telescope eyepiece, and allows adjustment to achieve precise focus and centering for afocal photography. The rubber-lined eyepiece clamp helps prevent any marring or damge to your eyepieces. This versatile mount offers three dimensions of adjustment (horizontal, vertical, and depth) to accomodate almost any camera size or lens position. You can even rotate the camera away from the eyepiece for visual access, without having to remove the Orion SteadyPix Deluxe mount.

The Orion SteadyPix Deluxe has been improved to fit all 1.25" eyepieces and most 2" eyepieces (up to 61mm in diameter). It also features a sturdier all-metal design for increased rigidity and performance. So if you've got the desire to dabble in astro-imaging, the Orion Steady Pix Deluxe Camera Mount is a great way to get started! Weighs just 10 oz. and includes a one-year limited warranty.

Good Design, Poor Execution
The design of the adapter is very good, especially the ability to swing the camera away from the eyepiece without disturbing the alignment. However, the construction leaves much to be desired. One glaring problem is that the screw that is supposed to hold the two main parts of the adapter together is too short, and as a result the camera is not held solidly. I replaced the supplied screw with a longer one, and used some Lock-tite on the threads, and that seems to have solved the problem. It's obvious that the manufacturer never actually tested the production adapter properly.

After replacing the screw, the adapter worked OK.
