EYEPIECE OPTIONS

A wide range of eyepieces are available for use with Classic Fieldscopes. Choosing the best eyepiece is often confusing but making the right choice will depend on price and application. It is important to remember that the eyepiece is an integral part of the whole set-up and opting for a lower quality lens will make a difference to the overall image quality derived from the fieldscope

  PHOTOADAPTER PHOTOGRAPHY
 
opticron_is_photo_adapt.jpg (9919 bytes) opticron_photo_adapt_pics.jpg (17774 bytes)
IS Telescopes can easily be converted into a long focal length telephoto lens
for photography using an SLR camera.

To convert the instrument you will need:
- 40215S Photoadapter         
Price incl. VAT   65.00

- 40927S Near focus Adapter   Price incl. VAT   3.00

- Equivalent focal lengths using the Telephoto adapter are:
585mm/f.11.7 in IS 50
700mm/f.11.7 in IS 60



To connect your camera to the Photoadapter:

- Suitable T2 mount            
Price incl. VAT 10.00

To convert the instrument to a telephoto lens screw the internal thread of 40215I onto 40927S adapter ring. Secondly screw the combination onto the ‘eyepiece end’ of the main body. Attach appropriate T mount to external threaded end of Telephoto adapter and then attach SLR camera body onto T mount.
Note. If you find the camera is at an odd angle when attached - adjust the Telephoto adapter or twin rings on the T mount to bring the camera into line.
For best results we recommend you use 400 or 800 ASA rated film and a cable release.
