What smartphone adapter would you recommended and why?  If it makes any difference it's for an OVNI-M.

Cheers.

I used this one with my ovni-m (when I had it 😀). Seemed to work well and in a similar way to the Televue fonemate.

It’s in stock at amazon.

Thanks, Gavin, I'll have a proper look shortly.  Are these better than the cheaper models that Joko and others sell?

Any other suggestions? I'd need one that will take the Televue 55/67mm Plossl as well as narrower eyepieces.

Yes. I’ve tried those cheaper ones, but much prefer the Orion/Televue fonemate. I only use these phone mounts for my phone pics which hopefully indicates they work well. If you are using it for nv, then which glass eyepiece you are using isn’t an issue since it’s the ovni-m you will be clamping it onto. However I do use my Televue phonemate one for non nv work with Televue eyepieces and it also works well.
