  1. David F. Orth

    I recently purchased a Google Pixel 4XL smartphone with an astrophotography capability, and I was looking for a smartphone adapter that could mount to a tripod head in addition to telescope eyepieces. I decided to purchase the Oberwerk model upon learning it has a 1/4”-20 mounting hole for that former purpose.

    After receiving the item, a quick inspection showed that the adapter was light-in-weight yet constructed very well. All mechanisms for securing the smartphone into the adapter as well as attaching to a eyepiece were tight and rigid; there was no slop in their fit. Also, the rubberized points that touch my smartphone do a great job in not marring or damaging the finish.

    Since my purchase, I’ve had the opportunity to use the adapter in both configurations. On the tripod, my smartphone is securely mounted, and I’m able take great wide-field astrophotography images over the course of a night. On the telescope, the phone/adapter setup firmly attaches to the eyepiece. The approach for aligning the camera’s aperture over the eyepiece pupil is simple and effective, yet it does requires some trial and error. However, once the sweet spot is found, the whole mechanical setup is nice and rigid. The positioning of the aperture to the eyepiece remains secure and unchanged as the telescope, eyepiece, and phone shift to different parts of the sky.

    Overall, it is a great device for its stated purpose.

    Great device, I am using it with Samsung S10, where camera lens is in center of phone (not offset to one side).

    I agree 100% with what was stated above:

    I am quite pleased with this digiscoping devise. I attached it to my Oberwerk 15×70 binoculars. Using an iPhone XR that has a thick cellhelmet case cover, it fits securely into the rubber grips. The previous reviews were very helpful along with viewing the photos that were available on your site in attaching the adapter made it easier to figure out . I managed to take a pic of a barred owl who landed in my yard the same day. Great product!

    I purchased this in hopes of using it with two binoculars also bought from Oberwerk. Despite repeated attempts, we aren’t able to attach it to either pair. On the 10×50 binoculars, with a lot of effort it will almost fit around the eye piece, but even then the phone (iPhone 11 Pro with the case removed) will not focus on what is viewable. I have zoomed the camera in and that doesn’t make a difference. Just for fun, I tried using in on an inexpensive Bushnell and same results – the rig doesn’t perform as I’d hoped from seeing pictures and reading other reviews.
