Direct Wide



Direct-Wide Pho...

Direct-Wide Photo Adapters offer an improved way of mounting your camera/T-Ring directly to 60mm draw tubes.


Direct Wide Ada...

Direct Wide Adapter for Olympus Manual Focus.


Direct Wide adapters provide frame-filling, prime-focus connections between the Vixen-style 60mm draw tube and your SLR/DSLR camera T-Ring. Wide opening mitigates vignetting on fast optical systems. Allows easy rotation for image orientation after mounting — you'll never go back to a simple T-Ring connection again.

Includes internal 56mm / 0.75mm accessory thread. Requires outer part from your camera's T-Ring.

Important Notes

  • Vixen 60mm draw tube thread is M60 x 0.75mm found on some models of Vixen, Borg, Orion, older Celestron & other brand telescopes.
  • Direct Wide Adapters are designed to work with the original manufacture’s T-Ring specification. You’ll need a quality Japanese Made T-Ring for proper fit. Some of the T-Rings below will fit other brands of camera bodies. See T-Ring Reference to cross-reference your camera body with the correct T-Ring.
  • Some scopes may need optional Extension Tube for 60mm Draw Tubes to reach focus.
  • Not all Newtonians are made for imaging. Full-frame imagers using fast imaging Newtonians may opt for the Coma Corrector R200SS (f/4).
  • See Technical Document at page bottom.
