Excellent i, works as advertised and is very easy to adjust. Much better than similar products.
This is the third type of telescope adaptor I’ve bought and the only one I don’t want to smash.
Made well, easy to use and most importantly, quick to align.
This all metal 3 axis cell phone mount is much better than other plastic 1 and 2 axis mounts. My iPhone has several lenses which need individual adjustment. It attaches easily to my binoculars. Great device. I highly recommend it. Shipping it to canada was a breeze.
I haven’t actually tried to take photo with it yet, but let me make two initial positive observations: (1) It does appear to be a precision design and be constructed of quality materials, and (2) addresses a critical flaw in my other two camera to telescope adaptors, i.e., a Z-axis adjustment. I’m going to try pre-mounting a favorite eyepiece for planets and the moon into the adaptor so it can be quickly popped into my scope’s diagonal when a photo opportunity presents itself. M-S-M suggests they have a link to smart-phone camera adjustments that should improve one’s luck with capturing “dim” targets. Unfortunately, I live in a city with a lot of light pollution, so there are only a few good observation nights. I’ll have to experiment trying to use a “point and shoot” camera which may have a better lens than a smart phone. It’s nice that a blu-tooth shutter release is included - though a phone’s self-timer could be an alternate to avoid telescope shake.
I am using my adapter on a Vortex spotting scope that has a soft rubber part where the adapter attaches, this makes it a little difficult to set up with the camera at the ideal 90 degree angle but it’s not too hard to deal with. In all other respects the adapter works very well. There is plenty of adjustment in all 3 axis’s to allow you to get the most out of your phone camera. The biggest problem I have had is controlling the camera. Where others add functionality to their cameras Apple takes options away making it hard to control what camera and mode you need. A third party camera app can take care of these problems but most have to be purchased or subscribed to. The adapter works great though.
This is by far the best, most stable phone holder I've used. I've made several homemade a 3d printed holders and I have the floppy one from the main competitor to this one and they all are very much lacking. The moment you take it out of the box/bag and feel it's all metal construction you KNOW it will be a quality lasting tool for quite some time.
Using it with an iPhone 14 pro max on a spotting scope. Works very good in fixing the phone at correct position. Having some issues getting the iPhone to do correct exposure but as a phone holder it works perfectly.
Easy to use and very durable. No more spending extra time trying to line things up anymore.
