A secure connection
The Omegon camera adapter creates a secure connection – a bridge between your telescope and your smartphone. Simply clamp your device to your eyepiece with the adapter – hey presto, your smartphone is turned into an astronomy camera!
Suitable for most phones
It doesn’t matter what kind of phone you have – almost all models can be clamped and are easy to adjust. Even larger smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, S5 or S6 fit perfectly in this adapter.
Total flexibility – the huge range of adjustment makes the Omegon smartphone adapter universal. Smartphones can be steplessly adjusted in both the vertical and horizontal planes. This lets you set the camera lens directly in front of your eyepiece, hence allowing you to snap your favourite objects.
Show your images and videos
The cameras in modern smartphones have become so good that they can also be used for real photography. Of course, they cannot replace astronomical CCD cameras, but they are not envisaged to be able to do that. Astrophotography with a smartphone has one purpose – to be quick and easy.
You do not only take images for yourself, but in order that they can be seen and enjoyed by others. No other device or camera can be used to take images as quickly and easily as a smartphone. So take advantage of the advanced features of your smartphone – such as social networks, and show your friends what you have been doing.
All compatible smartphones can be looked up in the “download” tab.
