Hi,

It is possible to get a camera mount for the Celestron PS1000 Newtonian Reflector Telescope, depending on what type of camera you are using you will need the following:
- For a DSLR you will need a T-Adapter with Barlow, Hama part no. 00150965, plus a T-Mount for your camera, Hama part no. 00146338 for Nikon, 00146339 for Sony A/Minolta or 00146340 for Canon EF/EF-S.

- If you are using a compact camera then a Celestron a camera mount for compact cameras that secures on to the eyepiece of the telescope is available, Hama part no. 00145634.

Space and Astronomy

4 months, 3 weeks ago
Hi I am new to telescopes and had a sudden interest in space and astronomy, so was wondering wether this telescope is able to see planets and stars good enough. I've been watching some reviews of Celestron telescopes and they apparently show planets (Moon, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter etc...) So was wondering wether it shows what I'm looking for clearly and not just from far or not clear (if you know what I mean). Help is appreciated!

Answer: 
Hello,

Thank you for your question. I have looked into this and the Celestron PS1000 Newtonian Reflector Telescope is marketed really for beginner use. It should show planets in our solar system, you need to adjust it accordingly. I cannot really advise how happy you would be with this, my best advice is to read customer reviews on here and other sites before making your choice. I hope this helps.

Thank you for using Argos Q & A.

Answer: 
The answer above correctly gives the method of calculating the magnification given a telescope focal length and eyepiece focal length. The optimum (or usually maximum) magnification is found by multiplying the diameter of the telescope in mm by 2. So this telescope is 125mm diameter roughly, so the maximum magnification is about 250 (277 is near enough). However, you will need a very very very sturdy tripod to be able to do that.

Answer: 
Hello, Karl.

Having spoken to the supplier regarding your query they advise me that an optimum magnification of 277x and a potential for 833x is indeed correct.

The ?Optimum Magnification? is calculated by dividing the Focal length of the telescope (in this case 1000mm) by the smallest size Eyepiece (3.5mm) which equals 277.77 recurring.

The ?Maximum Theoretical Magnification? is calculated by adding the use of the 3 times Barlow lens. The Barlow lens multiplies the magnification gained from the eyepiece by 3 times, therefore when the Barlow lens is used with the 3.6mm eyepiece, the ?Maximum Theoretical Magnification? is 833.333 recurring (277.777 x 3 = 833.333).

I hope this helps.
