Invest in the best: the ORIGINAL
For good imaging results you need the real thing - the MICROSTAGE II is just that
You can find much cheaper clones of this product all over the internet. But once you try to use that you will instantly find out that the product is built improperly for the job. On all clones the metal frame that is supposed to clamp around an eyepiece is three times as narrow and cannot lock tight enough. These units bend off and mar the eyepiece once you load them with the most lightweight camera.
The spring loaded stops for the camera arm on these copys are single spring instead of double spring, the function is just awkward then. All bushings and fittings on those clones are done sloppy and weak - its a constant pain to work with such an improper tool. Choose a tool not a toy and get the real thing: the Microstage II
Basically, you can take a photo through the eyepiece of a telescope, spotting scope or binocularwith every compact camera. To get a good image, the camera must be centered and positioned close behind the eyepiece. This is not always easy if you are working freehand. With Microstage II, you can fix the camera in the perfect position behind the eyepiece and wait for the right moment simpler solutions let you only look through the camera, while the Microstage II allows you to easily swing the camera away to take a look through the eyepiece. When you are ready to shoot, simply swing the camera back the arm will lock in its old position

Secure grip! 25mm wide eyepiece clamp, for safely holding heavy cameras without any torsion. Much more stiff and rigid construction than all clones
