This device is specially made to connect Olympus Micro 4/3 DSLR and Panasonic Lumix G cameras to telescopes with 2″ eyepiece fitting diameter.
You fit one end of this adapter to the camera’s main body (in place of the camera lens), and insert the other end into telescope’s eyepiece barrel. You can also attach this adapter to telescope’s threaded eyepiece barrel with M42x1 thread (eg. Nipon 350×80 scope) (the 2″ T-adapter section of this device can be unscrewed from the camera adapter head). You can then take pictures through the scope. In effect, this device enables you to use the telescope lens as your camera lens for digi-scoping.
- Compatible with Olympus Micro 4/3 DSLR cameras and Panasonic Lumix G cameras with micro 4/3 lens mount for telescope connection.
- Standard 2″ (50.8mm) T-adapter fitting diameter for telescope’s eyepiece holder barrels.
- Built with metal material.
Note: Here are some compatible camera models for this adapter: Olympus m.Zuiko Digital, Olympus PEN, Panasonic Lumix G (and G X), and Panasonic Leica DG. Some Sony/Minolta DSLR cameras may also share this lens mount feature, but please check your product specification for details.

If you wish to extend the length of the 2″ adapter tube section for image focus purpose, an Extension Tube is available from this store. This extension tube increases the distance between the 2″ T-adapter and the camera T-ring.
Alternately, you can also connect two or more 2″ tubes together, the option available here.
