What adapter should i get to connect my DSLR to a reflector.

Recommended Posts

Hello, i got my Cannon 750D few days, and im thinking of buying some adapters so i can connect it to my telescope. Will a T2/1.25 eyepiece projection adapter and a T2/EOS adapter enable me to connect the 2 together? Also im wondering why a piece of plastic and some metal is so expensive :)))).       -Ahgi, Clear skies!

Just get one of these, https://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/canon-eos-t-ring.html

and then one of these to screw into it https://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/t-adaptor-1.25.html#SID=26

personally i would not bother with the eyepiece projection adapter,

Agree with the above, eyepiece projection is completely dependent on the eyepiece.

What scope do you have? Most Newtonians above a certain F-ratio don't have enough inward focus travel to focus for a DSLR in prime focus. If that is the case then you can attach a Barlow to extend the focus point, or move the mirror up the tube to reduce the focal length.

HTH

Edit: Never mind, I just realized that your signature says you have an Astromaster 130. You should have no problems with focusing as it is f/5. :icon_biggrin:

I do have a barlow lense just in case things don't go as planned and i can't focus, but is not having an eyepiece gonna reduce my magnification power compared to what i can see with my eyepieces normally? I want to do mostly planetary since my motor drive broke.

If your going to be doing lunar and planetary work then prime focus should still be the way to go. Add the Barlow in and shoot video using the movie crop function, stack in a stacking program and you should be good. Of course things get more in depth and frustrating then that, but that is the basics.

So, for prime focus, i didn't find T adapters, only T2, will that work? A T2-EOS adapter, and a T2-1.25.

I don't know what a T2 is? The two links that @JemC gave you should work fine with your camera.

if that is the supplier you are going to use then do not get the one you linked to,
get one of these https://www.omegon.eu/t2-rings/omegon-t2-ring-canon-eos/p,2416#tab_bar_1_select

and one of these https://www.omegon.eu/other-adapters/omegon-t-2-to-1-25-nosepiece/p,33230#tab_bar_1_select

and you should be good to go,

Regards

That is not the right adapter for prime focus. I assume that is for attaching 2" eyepieces in a 1.25" focuser.

well, the EOS adapter is for T2 as well, and the other one is T2, 1.25, so i don't see what the diffrence is, it's just a diffrent type of connection, the camera still gets connected to the telescope one way or another.

      Hi All,
      Having had to move to an apartment where I could not use my CPC 1100, I decided that I have to see what I could do with my NexStar SLT 102 (alt-az achromatic 102mm f6.47 refractor). Setting up on my narrow balcony was challenging and the altitude bearing was so loose that it almost moved from the weight of the Canon 700D. I could not see M31 in the estimated 3.5 magnitude sky so I did a two star alignment and used the live-view to focus on a bright star. I then took a 15 second exposure after slewing to M31 which allowed me to see that I had it in the field of view. After a few more 15 second exposures and playing with the motion controls I managed to get it centered. The resulting picture is from 39 subs of 30 seconds at ISO 1600, 9 flats. The images were stacked and stretched with Siril and then I played with the curves on Gimp, cropped and scaled. Not too unhappy.

      Note: This scope is in the USA, so international shipping may prohibit a sale. However, without the heavy Scopeguard case the shipping cost will be substantially reduced.
      I can provide a full frame image taken with this scope if anyone is interested.
      Reduced to £3155 for the complete package.  I will consider offers, but this is already close to my bottom price.
      I’ve decided to sell my Takahashi Epsilon Ɛ-180. The scope and optics are in good cosmetic and optical shape. There are a few minor tool marks around the collimation screws but otherwise no issues. The primary mirror is centered with a Catseye Hotspot.
      The scope will come with the Takahashi corrector, rings and top plate ($457 add-on), front cover, Scopeguard case ($500 add-on), BT Technologies dovetail bar ($150 add-on) (has a blemish but is super solid), Astrozap dew shield and cap with focus mask ($175 ad-on), Precise Parts Tak corrector to M48 adapter ($110 add-on), the Takahashi collimation tools, an M68x1 male to M54x0.75 female and a M54x0.75 male to 2" compression ring adapter ($100? add-on) (these allow you to use the scope visually with 2" eyepieces.)
      I replaced the stock focuser (included) with an Optec TCF-Leo focuser with temp probe. With the included scope adapter and Tak corrector adapter this is a $1400 add-on.
      Total new cost = £5900
      All of this for £3155 plus shipping.

      Just thought i'll bring this up as a point of discussion. Today, cooled CMOS Astro Cameras are available in plenty. QHY, ZWO and other variants of the same camera are selling for very reasonable prices. However, there was a point of time when astrophotographers used to cool down their DSLR's as a cheap OSC alternative to CCD cameras. Give a choice, I would've purchased a dedicated CMOS OSC which can cool to 40 C below ambient, but since I had a Canon 500D which I had self modded, I requested a friend Kaustav Chatterjee (an avid model railroader) to cold mod my 500D (he had cold modded his 1000D long back). This newly modded camera has a TEC12703 single peltier and cools to approximately 20 below ambient.What do you guys think?

      Hi all,
      This is 6 hours (30 x 12 min), taken with my modded Nikon D7000 @iso200 and Astronomik 12 nm Ha 2" filter on Meade LX200-ACF with reducer (=1600 mm FL @ F8). Guided with NexGuide on HEQ5 Pro.
      The plan was to do a Ha O3 bicolour on this target, but the O3 may be a future thing due to weather conditions.
      I usually remove the stars during part of my processing workflow and put them back later on, but this time I think the nebulosity and dust came out best without them. I did however try to find out which stars belong to Melotte 15 and include only those, just to portrait the Melotte 15 without anything between it and us, but I could not find that info.
      Processed with DSS, Starnet and PS.

      I was looking to get into astrophotography with my 10 inch dobson and for start would like to buy something affordable. Cameras can be used or new. Thanks in advance!
