Just bought the camera. Trying to mount it to celestron c8 ota. Read the manual, searched the net - but no success so far 🙁
- I have a celestron 0.63 focal reducer. I guess I need celestron T-adapter in between focal reducer and M42/M48 extenders, which I don't have readily available. Will place an order for that ( I guess with or without the focal reducer, I still need that T-adapter in the chain)
- Camera manual (quick guide, page 6) says however that I can also mount the cam via 1.25" nose piece provided. I just couldn't figure out how to do this!!
the diagram is something like this:
telescope <---- 1.25" nose piece <----M42/M48 adapter <-----T2 extender (11mm) <----camera
This doesn't work. 1.25" nose piece threads won't fit into M42/M48 adapter or T2 extender. As a matter of fact, they don't fit into anything supplied with the camera ?!!
On the link below, there is a slightly different version of the diagram:
Here, a "M42 1.25" adapter" is used instead of " "M42/M48 adapter" (which by the way should be the right one, so that you can screw a 1.25" filter into it - which I'm not intending to use for now anyway). However, I don't know how I should fit the 1.25" nose piece into either T2 extender or M42 1.25" adapter???
Any help is most appreciated.
