Opticron Product Code: 40849
A lightweight and secure 3-way platform for many compact cameras and camcorders.
The Universal Digital Camera Adapter is designed to allow you take high magnification photographs using Opticron telescopes and eyepieces in conjunction with most digital compact cameras and some digital camcorders using eyepiece projection.
Many digital compact cameras do not have screw threads on the lens assemblies to allow for direct coupling, so the UDCA is designed as a three-way adjustable balance plate that fixes directly to the telescope eyepiece.
The camera is fixed onto the UDCA and can be adjusted in three planes to enable correct positioning with respect to the eyepiece.
The vertical position of the balance plate can be fixed in order to swing the camera + balance plate in and out of position. This feature allows you to alternate between taking pictures and viewing through the eyepiece in the normal way.
Mounting the UDCA requires an eyepiece dia. less than or equal to 56mm and fixed (non rotating) eyepiece tube length of 15mm.
