Telephotography

Wildlife montage

Telephotography, (taking high magnification photographs) is now easier then ever to enjoy using Opticron telescopes in conjunction with either D-SLR / SLR cameras, digital compact cameras or camcorders.

Classic Telescopes can easily be converted into a long focal length telephoto lens for photography using an SLR camera [35mm film or Digital]. Equivalent focal length when using the recommended eyepiece is 900mm/f.12*

To convert the instrument you will need:
40407 Photoadapter Price inc. VAT £30.00
40812C HR eyepiece Price inc. VAT £57.00
• Suitable T-mount to connect your camera to the Photoadapter see: T-mounts

Classic IF-2 Telephotography

User Instructions
To convert the instrument to a Telephoto lens firstly remove viewing eyepiece.
Make sure correct eyepiece [40812C] is fitted securely into telescope body.
Push internal thread of the Photoadapter over the eyepiece and screw clockwise onto external ‘eyepiece cover’ thread. Screw extension tube onto Photoadapter.
Attach appropriate T-mount to external thread of extension tube and then attach SLR camera body onto T-mount.

Note. If you find the camera is at an odd angle when attached - the twin rings on the T-mount can be adjusted to bring the camera into line. For best results use 400 or 800 ASA film and a cable release or remote.

* This is an approximate figure based on 35mm SLR cameras. Digital SLR cameras use different size CCD's to create the image and as such an equivalent telephoto lens conversion figure must be calculated separately.
