GSO has enhanced the mechanical design of some of their most popular eyepieces to create an effective and innovative eyepiece that can be used not only for visual observations, but also for variable projection photography through a telescope. This new series Camera Projection Lens (CP Lens) is perfect for use with compact Digital or SLR cameras.
The top of this 1.25" eyepiece features a standard T / T2 male thread (M42x0.75) that can be exposed by unscrewing a threaded guard. Using a T-ring specific to your camera brand (not included), you can connect your camera easily to this eyepiece. This combination can be inserted into any telescope with a 1.25" focuser tube. The outer sleeve / barrel of the CP Lens eyepiece can then be adjusted to move upward or downward for optimum viewing performance, and can be extended until you have reached its perfect viewing position for your imaging needs.
The Ploss CPL eyepiece series features fully multi-coated lenses, good apparent fields of view, excellent contrast, and the convenience of a versatile photography adapter and eyepiece in one intergated accessory for your telescope.
