Product Details

Today's digital cameras now enable amateurs to take spectacular images of solar system objects with their favorite telescope. However, numerous obstacles must still be overcome to match camera to telescope, both optically and physically. Ideally, what is required is a rigid and secure method of coupling the wide variety of popular cameras, that allows the astro-imager to use their own eyepieces and to easily vary the distance from camera-to-eyepiece for the optimum position.

Our New Baader Micro Stage II Clickstop Digital Camera Adapter delivers this flexibility, with a brand new twist to help in framing and focusing. Normally, with other camera adapters, the user must frame and focus the eyepiece first, then attach the camera, being careful not to disturb the infinity focus. With the MicroStageII Clickstop, the camera can be adjusted to accurately center on the eyepiece, then the camera can be simply pivoted away from the eyepiece for easy visual access to the eyepiece. Twist the camera back into position, tighten the lock screw and that's it! The camera may be pivoted out of the way anytime and instantly returned to its aligned position. A detent (Clickstop) ensures a consistent return position every time.

The combination of cast clamp and support arms permit an easy and precise alignment of the camera to eyepiece, with just about any camera and eyepiece combination. The Micro Stage II quickly attaches to an eyepiece by it's single clamp knob and large-area padded V-block clamp. The clamp has been designed to attach to a large range of both 1.25" AND 2" eyepieces (29 - 63mm eyepiece outside diameters). The Micro Stage II even readily adapts to spotting scopes and binoculars. Each Micro Stage II comes in a leatherette storage pouch and folds into a compact flat configuration for easy storage in camera cases, etc.
