How do you use a Canon T ring?

To use the Canon EOS T-Ring, remove the lens from your camera, and attach the T-Ring in its place, just as you would if you were mounting a lens. The telescope side of the T-Ring has threads that will accept a variety of camera adapters, including the Celestron T-Adapter or Tele-Extender.

Is T-mount the same as M42?

A T-adapter is an interchangeable lens mount made to fit onto a T-mount lens to enable it to be used on a camera.

Is the control ring adapter worth it?

Do I need a T ring adapter?

In most cases, you will need both a T-Adapter and a T-Ring to be able to attach your DSLR or Mirrorless camera to your telescope. A handful of telescopes, however, come with the right threads to attach a T-Ring already on the back so you don’t need a T-Adapter.

Are T rings universal?
