This is the same product as 365620, but also includes an additional adapter that enables to attach an iPhone or smartphone.

The 365Astronomy Digital Camera Microstage Adapter is a flip-off type microstage to attach any digital compact cameras, most bridge cameras, most mirror-less system cameras, some dSLR cameras, iPhone and smartphones to a telescope, spotting scope or even a binocular by clamping it into the optical instrument's eyepiece. The camera is secured to the microstage adapter by a standard 1/4" photo threaded thumbscrew or if you want to attach a smartphone or iPhone, there is a special, flexible adapter frame to secure your camera phone to the microstage.

This camera adapter is different from other "fixed" position microstages in a way that this one can be flipped off to the side for using the optical instrument visually for finding the object and focusing, then you can flip the camera back, secure its position and take the image.
It's a full metal construction adapter with a rubber cover for better grip under the camera and soft inserts on all four sides inside the eyepiece clamp so that it won't scratch your eyepiece, plus it will grab better.
We would advise to use this camera adapter with binoculars when the binocular is installed on a tripod.


Smart phone width must be between appr. 56mm and 89mm

Image is for demonstration only: telescope eyepiece and camera are not included. This version of the 365astronomy microstage can be used with digital cameras as well as with smartphones or iPhone devices (see images above and below)

The adapter allows a two-way adjustment of the camera, thus it can be positioned easily so that the camera lens' axis will match up with the eyepiece's axis for perfect centered imaging position to reduce vignetting as much as possible.

Vignetting will depend on many factors of course, including the exit lens diameter of the eyepiece, the type and focal length of the camera lens and other factors as well.


The smallest eyepiece diameter that the clamp will hold is appr. 30mm


The largest eyepiece diameter that the clamp will hold is appr. 63mm


Weight: 302g
Warranty: 1 year

This camera adapter is also a good alternative to the Orion SteadyPix Deluxe or Baader Microstage 2, but it's even comes with additional functionality for smartphones
