Knight OWL Eyepieces

This adapter is sturdy, all metal construction for long life


Detail of Adapter
This 1-1/4 inch adapter has a brass retaining ring to protect your eyepieces

This is a sturdy adapter to allow the use of your 1-1/4" eyepiece in 2" focus tubes and diagonals. It is very sturdy and of all metal construction.

One fine point should be mentioned. When you tighten down the set screw on an eyepiece with most such adapters you have a chance of marring the finish of the eyepiece barrel. As shown in the photo, there is an brass retaining ring on our adapter that is tightened by the set screw. Instead of your eyepiece being held by one set screw causing nicks, it is held around a large portion of its diameter by the softer brass ring. Don't destroy the appearance of your high end Tele VueŽ and MeadeŽ eyepieces. There were no compromises and a lot of thought going into the design of this adapter. A basic accessory but one that is well made and designed by GSO.

This adapter is sturdy, all metal construction for long life.

Dual Telescope Photo Adapter - 1.25"
New Improved Model

Adapter for Both Prime Focus and Eyepiece or Barlow Projection
All Aluminum Construction

Photo AdapterThis photo adapter slides into the 1-1/4" eyepiece holders. It attaches to your SLR camera using your T-Ring adapter (not included) to provide four different photographic modes with your telescope:

  • Prime Focus Photography - Use direct with your camera
  • Simple Barlow Projection - Use above with your barlow and camera
  • Eyepiece Projection - Use your eyepiece in extension tube
  • Extended Barlow Projection - Use extension tube with your barlow (Extended barlow projection makes a 2X barlow into a 3X or more barlow)
  • This new, improved model fits standard eyepiece filters and the lens assembly from our 2X Barlow. With this arrangement, it is about a 1.75X Barlow equivalent.

Total length with extension is about 95 mm (3-3/4"). This is a reasonably priced, but high quality product. Compare it to the adapters offered in the national magazines.

Please Note:The current model of this camera adapter does not have the words "CAMERA ADAPTER" printed on the side.
