Item # TS-TSFLIP$249.95
A flip mirror is a unique CCD imaging accessory that allows you to use an eyepiece and a camera simultaneously. While telescope locator systems are excellent at finding their targets, they don't always hit them in the dead center of your view or imaging frame. Pair a reticle eyepiece with a flip mirror, and now you have a measured way to guide and correct while having your camera ready. An internal mirror deflects the incoming light 90 degrees up into the eyepiece. A helical fine focus mechanism on the eyepiece holder lets you set the eyepiece focus to be parfocal with the camera. Once you've focused the object in the eyepiece, a flip of the side lever drops the mirror to allow the light to enter the camera, rendering a sharp, focused CCD image. You can even just use a regular eyepiece for observing without disconnecting your imaging equipment.
