Mirrorless cameras are spreading like wildfire in the astroimaging community—and for good reason. When paired with Celestron’s groundbreaking 8” Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph (RASA), you can achieve spectacular deep-sky astronomical images.
So what makes a mirrorless camera the perfect match for RASA? First, 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’d like to use your SONY mirrorless camera with the 8” RASA, this adapter is a must-have accessory. Using the camera’s integrated bayonet mount, it attaches securely to the front of RASA. What’s more, this adapter places the camera’s sensor at the precise backfocus distance for optimal image sharpness.
