Imaging Adapters and T-Rings
Looking to use your DSLR camera to photograph the galaxy through a telescope? Browse our range of Imaging T-Adapters and T-Rings. Simple to set up, first choose the T-Ring designed for your camera body for example the Celestron T-Ring for Nikon Cameras, and the Celestron T-Ring for Canon EOS-EF cameras. Then select the right T-Adapter for your telescope, such as the T-Adapter for the NexStar 4SE, the Schmidt-Cassegrain or a Universal T-Adapter – 1.25” which will fit in any telescope that accepts 1.25” eyepieces.

Built specifically for particular telescopes, the T-Adapter is the mechanism that fits into the telescope’s focuser where an eyepiece would usually go. We have a number of T-Adapters to suit your telescope design including the Celestron T-Adapter for the NexStar 4SE, the Celestron T-Adapter for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes and the Celestron Universal T-Adapter – 1.25” which will fit in any telescope that accepts standard 1.25” eyepieces.
Designed specifically for particular camera mounts, a T-Ring is attached at the camera’s lens mount on one end, and to the T-Adapter on the other, joining the camera to the telescope and allowing you to take images of celestial objects. Check out the Celestron T-Ring for Nikon Cameras, and the Celestron T-Ring for Canon EOS-EF cameras to get snapping.
Why do I need a T-Adapter and T-Ring?
Because the T-Ring mount is specific to the brand of camera that you are using, and the T-Adapter mechanism is specific to the telescope model, the two pieces are sold separately to suit everyone’s differing needs. Together these two pieces of kit combine to join your camera to your telescope, essentially turning it into an enormous telephoto lens.
What is digiscoping?
Digiscoping is where a camera is attached to a telescope or spotting scope and uses the scope as a telephoto lens. In the world of telescopes, this opens up the night sky to lunar and planetary photography.
