An e-mount to 1.25" telescope adapter.

For the moon, I used the following settings on the Sony:
Exposure time: 1/640 Sek.
ISO: 200
Flash: No ;-)

For the roof these settings:
Exposure time: 1/320 Sek.
ISO: 100

I have also triggered by remote control, to avoid camera shake.
My telescope is a Orion 6" Dobson with 750mm focal length.


It would be better the adapter to print in black.
I have used PLA and Cura for slicing.
The adapter fits perfectly for me.
Depending on your printer, it may be that you have to use sandpaper.

--- I will soon upload a new version.
--- This version does not lock.

Holy cow! How do you get such a good picture without a tracking scope?? Your stars are spot on!

I have a NEX5 and my camera says "invalid lens" or something to that nature. Did you have to mess with yours to get it right?

You have to enable the following:
Menu -> Setup -> Release w/o Lens
have fun!

Thx for the reply. I had to update my firmware. If anyone else does not have this option in the Menu > Setup.. thats what is up.

Very nice!
I have used matte nail polish on my adapter and it now works in bright sunlight as well without contrast issues...
Though I have yet to try how it performs on PLA; Some nail polish does not stick to PLA at all, while on ABS it creates a durable coating (due to the solvents in nail polish).

Very nice!

Not sure if this will work with PLA, I'm going to try tomorrow how this brand performs on PLA)
