With this mount the afocal photography is possible without shaking and reasonable focusing. In this variant of astrophotography, the camera is not placed in the focus of the optics, but behind the eyepiece; just like the eye in visual observation. By choosing a suitable eyepiece, you can achieve such high magnifications and achieve beautiful results, especially in lunar and planetary photography. Afocal photography is also suitable for nature and landscape if the optics shows an upright and right-angled image, as spotting scopes do.
This holder is equipped with a quick release , with which the camera can be swung to the side, so a quick change between the visual observation and photography is possible, without having to remove the camera each time.
The holder is suitable for both telescopes and spotting scopes. Eyepoint eyepieces should be used to minimize vignetting.

- 1. The height from the bottom of the camera to the center of the camera lens should be between 14 and 50 millimeters.
- 2. The distance between the tripod connection thread of the camera and the lens of the camera should be between 13 and 85 millimeters.
