Looking for the best phone adapters for telescopes? Check out our top picks, including universal, iPhone, and Android adapters! Capture stunning images of the night sky now!

When you are stargazing and watching those beautiful views from your telescope, you want to quickly capture them to share them with friends or on social media. Not everyone wants to do serious astrophotography with expensive cameras and stuff. Sometimes we just want to capture the image with our phone, but most telescopes do not come with a smartphone adapter to connect your phone to your telescope. 

All you need to do phone astrophotography with your telescope is a phone adapter or mount that fits on the telescope. The phone adapter needs to be lightweight and sturdy enough to support the weight of the phone. If it is not lightweight, then your telescope might not be able to support the whole weight and make some vibrations, which will just ruin your photos.

So here are some of the best phone adapters you can buy to get started with phone astrophotography.

Celestron–NexYZ 3–Axis Smartphone Adapter 

This is one of the best phone adapters you can get. This is slightly more expensive than others but totally worth your money in regards to its build quality and features. One of the best features of this adapter is that you can easily adjust your phone on the three axes (X, Y, and Z). This will give you maximum control over aligning your phone’s camera with the eyepiece.

The second best thing about this adapter is how quickly you can attach it to the eyepiece. It just has a clamp, which takes 2 seconds to fit on the eyepiece. Also, you can quickly change phones while taking photos if you are in a group setting. So, everyone can get photos on her phone. This one also comes with a Bluetooth version.
