Jupiter and Saturn are visible all night and many will want to take the opportunity to image these giant planets.
Trying to get a small planetary image onto the centre of an imaging camera’s sensor can be difficult. You can move the telescope around tring to find the planets, or you can centre it in an eyepiece, then remove the eyepiece and insert the camera, possibly to find that planet is not visible making you repeat the procedure can be frustrating.
Baader Planetarium’s 3-port Flip Mirror II (BFM II) is an ideal accessory for planetary (and Lunar) imaging. The BFM II will help you easily centre a planet or Lunar feature in an eyepiece and then by simply flipping the BFM II’s mirror up out of the light path’s way, places the object on your camera’s imaging chip. The BFM II uses S52, M48 and T-2 on both sides for telescope/camera connection (e.g. from Baader’s wide selection of Astro T-2 accessories), and an adjustable position T-2 adaptor on top for e.g. eyepiece clamps (or even a binoviewer).
Using an eyepiece clamp such as Baader’s ClickLock Eyepiece Clamp 1¼” with built in diopter-adjustment (T-2 part #08) allows you to easily set the focus of your eyepiece to be the same as that of the camera.
