Smartphone adapter

Since I was a little disappointed in the point-and-shot camera afocal configuration on the LightBridge, I remembered seeing that there were smartphone adapters.  Orion Telescope had two types.  I also found a blog post with reviews.  This lead me to the HookUpz 2.0 IS-200 by Carson

My first issue with the point-and-shoot configuration was the camera only had some many controls.  Manual focus wasn’t an option.  The adapter was flexible but too flexible.  The images could only be viewed by removing the SD card.  With a smartphone, HookUpz looked very easy to connect and disconnect.  The smartphone camera would be very close to they eyepiece and the images would be synced via wireless to my computer.

So, I ordered a HookUpz to try it out.
