Meade 62 T-Adapter
|Meade 62 T-Adapter threads onto the rear cell of any Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. Meade 62 T-Adapter #07352. Schmidt-Cassegrain style telescope adapter for prime focus photography. Compatible with all Meade and Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrains that have a standard Schmit-Cassegrain type rear cell thread. Not for use with Celestron EdgeHD optics. |
The #62 T-Adapter threads to the rear cell of the telescope directly without use of an eyepiece holder. Output is a standard photographic T-thread (male) to which many imaging devices including the Meade DSI will thread directly. For film based SLR cameras a T-Mount is required, ordered separately for your 35mm camera brand.
The appropriate T-mount will thread onto the universal threads of the T-Adapter on one side and has the bayonet-mount unique to the user's brand of 35mm camera on the other side. In this way the camera body is rigidly coupled to the telescope's optical system, which in effect becomes the camera's lens.
