Celestron NexYZ 3-Axis Universal Smartphone Adapter in More Detail

Versatile adapter for a range of optics

For Telescopes, Binoculars and Spotting Scopes

Squeeze the lever to open the clamp. Position the clamp around the eyepiece and release. Tighten the safety lock. Start composing and shooting images and videos!

For Microscopes

Choose one of the two included adapter rings that best fits your microscope’s eyepiece and secure it in place. (You may need to remove the eyepiece from the microscope to install the ring.) Then, follow the instructions above to get ready and shoot.

Versatile connector

NeXYZ works with regular phone cases, but you will need to remove ‘olio-style' cases. Place your phone on the platform, making sure the bottom is touching the rubber base then release the slider. Your phone is now secure and ready for shooting. If needed you can make tension adjustments to keep the phone firmly in place.

Align and Shoot

Open the camera app. Position the phone over the eyepiece using the X and Y axis knobs. Then, use the Z axis knob to move closer or further away from the eyepiece until you have achieved perfect framing. Finally adjust the focus using the focuser on your optics and capture your image.

Compatible with virtually any optics

NexYZ fits any eyepiece from 30mm to 60mm including telescopes with 1.25 and 2-inch eyepieces, spotting scopes, monoculars and binoculars. NexYZ will also attach to microscopes with the addition of an included microscope adapter ring. This takes the usable diameter down to 25mm which fits most standard microscope eyepieces. A strong spring and a threaded twist lock provide two-level secure grip on the optical instrument’s eyepiece so you can image with confidence.

Works with virtually any phone

NexYZ accommodates a huge range of smartphones. The phone platform is fully adjustable and can fit any device, usually with the phone’s case still on. Even larger ‘phablets’ like iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy devices work straight away.

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.

Our Verdict


With the NexYZ 3-Axis Universal Smartphone Adapter from specialists Celestron, Astro photography and videography is more accessible than ever. Many of us are interested in watching the night sky and nature spotting, but don’t have a big budget for getting the latest computerised telescopes or spotting scopes. This clever adapter lets you connect almost any smartphone to an optical device and harness the high quality imaging, which many of our phones are capable of. The universal clamping system fits around most phones even with a case on and the 3-Axis adjustment is quick and easy with three directional knobs (X, Y, and Z axis). Perfect alignment allows for composition of the subject, whether that is the moon, wildlife or micro organisms under a microscope.

The adapter is strong and durable, built from metal and polymer, while a threaded twist lock offers two-level secure grip on the optical eyepiece so you can shoot with confidence. Once you get the hang of 3-Axis alignment you can set-up your smartphone with any chosen optical device in around 30 seconds, so you’ll never miss a moment. The NexYZ really does provide us with a practical, easy to use and durable entry into Astro with a whole new world of photographic possibilities.
