Inside the TS-Optics Flip Mirror there is a mirror, similar to the one of normal mirror diagonals, that can be placed in two positions. In one, the mirror reflects the light towards the eyepiece positioned above the flip-mirror that allows the user to center the photographed object. In the other, the mirror moves out leaving the light exit behind the flip mirror where the CCD camera is positioned. So you can start the photography.

The use of the TS-Optics Flip Mirror is recommended also for planetary imaging. In fact, most of the users that record the planets and the Moon at high magnifications use Barlow lenses for greater magnifications. In this way you can achieve amazing images of planets like Jupiter or Saturn also with relatively common instruments. At high magnifications, however, center the planet or a Moon's detail in the small camera field is very difficult and is made even more difficult by the fact that the planetary cameras have very small sensors. Instead, using the TS-Optics Flip Mirror before you can center the object to be pictured with the eyepiece and then take a picture with the camera installed in the rear output of this accessory.
