I've got the "Sky-Watcher Skymax-127 Maksutov" telescope and the "TS-Optics Altazimuth Mount GSAZ" mount for my moon fanatic father, thanks to the help I've got from the people of this forum on this post that I've created:
With the 25mm eyepiece which came with the OTA and the help of the "Gosky Universal Cell Phone Adapter Mount" that he has, my father is able to take pictures and videos of the moon, such as this one (and he does this basically every day):
For the eyepiece, I've recently ordered the Baader Hyperion Zoom Eyepiece 8mm-24mm. The problem with this eyepiece is that it's really wide. Apparently, 55mm wide according to First Light Optics Specs which will be too big for the Gosky Universal Phone Adapter. My father has an Android smartphone and he is only interested in recording the moon and I was wondering if you guys have any good phone adapter suggestions for me?
I've done some research and I was thinking of ordering the:
Celestron NexYZ 3-Axis Universal Smartphone Adapter:
Snapzoom Universal Digiscoping Adapter:
I am not sure which one of these would be a better fit or if there are even better options out there that are around the same price range. I've also read very bad reviews about these two adapters on multiple different sites and I don't want my father to suffer dealing with a bad phone adapter so I am trying to find the best fit for him. I guess I should also consider the 12-15mm eye-relief of the zoom eyepiece in which case I am not sure which adapter would be the best fit. What do you guys think?
