We've been manufacturing and selling
our MM Series digital camera adapters for select Sony and Nikon digital
cameras for six years now, and on occasion we've been asked about their
usefulness with telescopes. Telescopes are not our area of
expertise by any means, but adapting consumer digital cameras for use
with microscopes certainly is. So, while we had been told that our
adapters work quite well with telescopes, we had not put them to the
test until very recently. We purchased a Meade LX90 LNT 8"
astronomical telescope, set it up on the first clear night and tried it
out. While we still have much to learn about multiple exposures
and stacking images, etc, our first outing with telescope and a couple
of cameras with MM adapters proved quite successful.
So, we now proudly introduce the MMT Spacer to fit
standard 1.25" telescopes, available for all MM
adapters. The MMT Spacer is threaded to accept standard
1.25" eyepiece filters.
