Product Spotlight: The Orion SteadyPix iPhone Adapter

Written by Tammy Plotner

Are you ready for a really cool, new product? Then you've got to check out the Orion SteadyPix iPhone Adapter! This dandy little piece of equipment is a felt-lined clamp which attaches right to any 1.25" eyepiece (and barrels up to 1.5") and works with the original iPhone, iPhone 3, 3GS, 4 or iPhone 4S. The bracket holds the iPhone camera lens directly over the "sweet spot" of your telescope's eyepiece and allows you to take great pictures of things like bright deep sky objects, the planets, the Moon and sunspots. Now you don't have to be a professional, or have a lot of expensive equipment to do some astrophotography!

Orion SteadyPix Telescope Afocal Adapter for iPhone

The Orion SteadyPix Telescope iPhone Afocal Adapter even lets you display a live view of the image projected by your telescope on your iPhone screen so it acts like a "real time" monitor. This is a great idea for those who like to share the view with family and friends. The monitor mode is also great for outreach and allowing those with mobility issues to easily see what the telescope sees. What's more, the SteadyPix iPhone Adapter can even let you attach your iPhone to a photo tripod for wide-field pictures without a telescope.

Be the first kid on your block to have the Orion SteadyPix iPhone Adapter! Order yours at OPT today!
