Piggyback Brackets

An easy introduction to astrophotography, the Piggyback Bracket allows use of your telescope to track the night sky while your camera captures beautiful wide-field photos of the Milky Way and other regions of the sky.

What is a Piggy-Back Camera Mount?

When taking photographs of celestial objects the camera must be able to track the movement of the stars.  To accomplish this, a Piggy-Back Camera Mount allows you to attach the camera, piggy-back style, to a polar-aligned equatorial telescope.
