3D Printed Camera Tripod Adatper for Telescope

This summer you can check out the night sky and photograph the moon with your camera phone using the Celestron FirstScope. Our 3d printed adapter allows you to mount the telescope to any camera tripod so you can get a better view of the sky.

The FirstScope comes with 2 standard 1.25′ eye pieces and features a focal length of 300mm, so you can get a telescopic view of the sky.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
