Explore scientific 130/600 EQ 3 astronomical Reflector Telescope
How many times have you wished you could center your smartphone’s lens right over the center of the eyepiece lens to grab an image of the Moon or a bright planet? It’s not easy to handhold it as you will find out if you try.
This handy adapter works with any smartphone, holding it securely with a set screw to a standard size barrel 1.25-inch eyepiece. And with 35 soft silicon rubber suction cups, it will hold your smartphone firmly in the precise position, allow you to center the camera’s lens.

astronomical reflector telescope
A reflecting telescope (also called a reflector) is a telescope that uses a single or a combination of curved mirrors that reflect light and form an image. The reflecting telescope was invented in the 17th century by Isaac Newton as an alternative to the refracting telescope which, at that time, was a design that suffered from severe chromatic aberration. Although reflecting telescopes produce other types of optical aberrations, but it is a design that allows for very large diameter objectives. And almost all of the major telescopes used in astronomy research are reflectors. So reflecting telescopes come in many design variations and may employ extra optical elements to improve image quality or place the image in a mechanically advantageous position. Since reflecting telescopes use mirrors, the design is sometimes referred to as a catoptric telescope.
Because Reflecting telescopes, just like any other optical system, do not produce “perfect” images. So the need to image objects at distances up to infinity, view them at different wavelengths of light and along with the and but so because and but so because and but so because and but so because and but so because and but so because and but so because and but so because and but so because and but so because requirement to have some way to view the image but primary mirror produces, means there is always because of some compromise in a reflecting telescope’s optical design.
