Details

Meade 8" Piggyback Bracket #07394. Take your camera for a ride on your Meade LX90 or LX200! Bolts securely to the top of the telescope using existing mounting points on the tube. Compatible with all Meade 8" SCT and ACF models past and present including 8" LX90 and 8" LX200. Piggyback photography is a popular and easy way to get started in long exposure astrophotography and this adapter will let you get going.


This easy to use Piggyback Bracket allows secure mounting of your film or digital SLR camera which has a standard 1/4-20 thread for a tripod mounting bolt on the bottom to the top of your Meade telescope. Please note that the telescope must be wedge (equatorially) mounted and polar aligned for star images in long exposures to appear properly.


An easy introduction to astrophotography, the Piggyback Bracket allows use of your telescope to track the night sky while your camera captures beautiful wide-field photos of the Milky Way and other regions of the sky.
