Thanks to the Celestron Smartphone Adapter and the nearly ubiquitous smartphone, it has never been easier to take high-quality celestial images through your telescope.
Simply combine this inexpensive Celestron Smartphone Adapter #93674 with a Celestron Ultima Duo eyepiece and your iPhone 4 or 4S. The combination gives you a solid camera to telescope connection without wiggles or play so you can take sharp celestial images and steady videos with the 5 megapixel camera in your Apple iPhone 4 (8 megapixels with the iPhone 4S).
Just slightly larger than your smartphone itself, this 2.6 ounce Celestron adapter won’t add weight or bulk to your gear. Just slip your iPhone 4 or 4S into the adapter before your observing session, attach it to an Ultima Duo eyepiece, and you are be ready to capture sharp images of the heavens at a moment’s notice.
Unlike “universal” adapters, the Celestron Smartphone Adapter has no moving parts. It requires no tedious manual adjustments to position your iPhone's camera lens in the precise spot behind your scope needed to take pictures. Since the Smartphone Adapter is designed to fit the exact diameter of the Celestron Ultima Duo eyepieces, your camera is perfectly centered every time.
Launch your camera app and begin capturing photos and video. The magnification of your images will depend on your telescope focal length and the focal length of the Duo eyepiece you are using.
Once you've captured the perfect shot, share it with friends – you can use all the functions of your phone without removing it from the case. You can even use your camera for traditional photography while it is still in the adapter. Just remove the adapter ring and you’re ready to take wide views with your phone.
The Celestron Smartphone Adapter #93674 works with any telescope compatible with Ultima Duo eyepieces. A motor drive scope would be helpful, but not essential. The Smartphone Adapter is perfect for capturing the craters on the Moon, sunspots and solar prominences (using a solar telescope or telescope with a solar filter), the planets, and even the brightest deep sky objects such as the Orion Nebula. You can also use the adapter for daytime imaging through your telescope.
