Mirrorless cameras are becoming increasingly popular in the astroimaging community. When paired with Celestron’s groundbreaking 8” Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph (RASA), you can achieve spectacular deep-sky astronomical images.
A mirrorless camera makes a perfect match for RASA: Firstly, the compact camera body provides minimal obstruction when placed on the front of the RASA optical tube. Second, the sensitive imaging chip helps capture every bit of stunning detail that the RASA optical brings in.
If you want to use your Sony mirrorless camera with the Celestron 8” RASA, this adaptor is a must-have accessory. Using the camera’s integrated bayonet mount, it attaches securely to the front of RASA. What’s more, this adaptor places the camera’s sensor at the precise backfocus distance for optimal image sharpness.
