The NexYZ DX Kit is a great first step into the world of astroimaging or digiscoping. You get everything you need to capture sharp, detailed images and video: the customer favourite NexYZ DX smartphone adapter and a Bluetooth shutter release remote.
The NexYZ DX fits any eyepiece from 35 mm to 60 mm in diameter, including telescopes equipped with 1.25” or 2” eyepieces, spotting scopes, monoculars, and binoculars
. NexYZ also attaches to microscopes with the addition of an included adapter ring, which takes the usable diameter down to 25 mm, the size of a standard microscope eyepiece.
The NexYZ DX Kit accommodates a wide range of smartphones, including the larger phablets like the iPhone 8 Plus and latest Samsung Galaxy devices. The phone platform is fully adjustable and can fit any device, usually with the case still on. The secure platform stands up to the weight of these heavier devices with ease, thanks to NexYZ DX's strong metal spring and threaded twist lock. Should you need to tighten the tension on each axis for a customized secure connection,
Bluetooth Shutter Release Remote
To capture the best image, this kit also comes complete with a Bluetooth shutter release remote, which allows you to trigger the camera’s shutter on any Android or iOS smartphone without touching the device’s screen or buttons. This eliminates blurriness in your images caused by the phone or telescope shaking due to pressure from pressing the button manually. Pairing your Bluetooth remote to your smartphone for the first time takes only seconds. Detailed instructions are in our quick setup guide.
Easy as X-Y-Z
What makes patented NexYZ different from other smartphone adapters? The three-axis adjustment. Most adapters rely on you placing your phone perfectly on the platform and only offer limited adjustment in two axes. But NexYZ DX gives you the power to place your phone on the platform, centre it over the eyepiece with the X and Y knobs, and then move up or down over the eyepiece until you have the entire field of view in your shot.
And even though this adjustment is ultra-precise, it’s still quicker and easier than with other adapters. From start to finish, the process only takes about 30 seconds, including the time it takes to insert the phone into NexYZ, attach NexYZ to an eyepiece, start the camera app, and centre the camera over the eyepiece using the knobs.
Switching phones, eyepieces, or optical instruments, requires only slight adjustments to re-centre the camera over the new eyepiece. If multiple people want to capture a shot through your optic, NexYZ’s simple spring-loaded clamps make it easy to remove one device and replace it with another in seconds. NexYZ is the ideal solution for star parties and group bird walks where everyone wants their own shot of the action.
You can also switch your image from portrait to landscape simply by turning the padded eyepiece clamp and readjusting the X-, Y-, and Z-axis to realign your phone with the eyepiece.
NOTE: NexYZ is compatible telescopes, spotting scopes, binoculars, monoculars, and microscopes. It does not fit riflescopes. NexYZ DX works with most phone cases, but if you have an especially large phone case with built-in batteries or a folio-style case, you will need to remove it.
- A complete digiscoping solution: NexYZ DX connects your smartphone to an eyepiece while the Bluetooth shutter release button helps you get a steady shot every time.
- NexYZ’s patented design works with telescopes (with most 1.25” or 2” eyepieces), spotting scopes, binoculars, monoculars, and microscopes (with the included adapter rings).
- Connect the remote shutter release to your phone via Bluetooth to take photos or start/stop video recording without unwanted vibration.
- Both devices work with virtually all smartphone models, including the latest devices from Apple, Samsung, and Google.
- NexYZ features three directional knobs (X-, Y-, and Z-axis) that perfectly align your phone’s camera with the eyepiece in seconds. In addition, you can make tension adjustments to keep the phone firmly in place.
- NexYZ stands up to rigorous field use thanks to its robust, durable construction with a metal frame and polymer body.
