An amazing telescope accessory for digiscoping! This innovative digital camera adapter lens was specifically engineered and designed by William Optics for large-lens digital cameras and digital video cameras. It can be connected to any 2" focuser, diagonal or erecting prism. Other than for imaging, the DCL-52 eyepiece can be used independently for visual observation with a standard telescope.

One common complaint of nature watchers or planet shooters is most eyepieces produce vignetting or dark-tunnel vision when connected to standard telescopes. You will see the corners of the screen being darkened and might have to resort to cropping of shots. The DCL-52 takes care of this niggling problem as it has a big surface area and coupled with the 2" extender tube provided inside this package, you can now possibly take sharp and bright pictures without worrying if there is enough focusing distance! 

If your digital or video camera has 52mm filter threads, then it will connect smoothly to this digiscoping kit. Most compact cameras require a lens adapter. Check with us if you are not sure. We can provide one for you as an option!

This digiscoping kit is best used on compact or short-tube refractors, such as the telescopes from William Optics and Sky-Watcher.

If the telescope has a focal length of 400mm, the resulting magnification produced by using the eyepiece DCL-52 in the kit will be around 5.3x. So even when a compact digital camera of 4x optical zoom is used with this kit, you can achieve a magnification of more than 21x, which is within the range that birdwatchers and nature lovers are most interested in!
