iOptron Universal Smartphone AdapteriOptron introduces the Universal Smartphone Eyepiece Adapter ($58). This adjustable clamp-style adapter fits most cell phones, allowing users to take snapshots of the Moon, planets, the Sun (with proper filtering), and even some of the brightest deep-sky objects. Manufactured from CNC-machined aluminum, the unit can accommodate smartphones from 2½ to 3⅛ inches wide. Its innovative triple-leaf design enables users to position the custom 10-mm threaded eyepiece with a 1¼-inch nosepiece as close as possible to the camera lens on a phone to nearly fill the camera's entire field of view.
