Re: EOS Lens Adapter Loose - EFW Version

Sean, That sounds good. Yes, I cannot get this to work on any of my 3 Canon lenses that I own. I did not buy this from a dealer but bought this adapter direct from ZWO. Is there a way to get another one before my trip on June 10th? Please advise on quickest way for me to make this happen. I would st...

Re: EOS Lens Adapter Loose - EFW Version

Sean, I looked again at my adapter. The springs are actual quite flat. In addition, the springs are not the issue because the adapter binds up well before the springs are even engaged by the lens. The difference I see between my 2 adapters that seems significant is that the flanges on the new adapte...

Re: EOS Lens Adapter Loose - EFW Version

It seems like the fit is currently so tight that it may be more than just the spring force, but I will try to see if I can flatten those springs out a little bit and see if that might help.

I will let you know how it goes.

Re: EOS Lens Adapter Loose - EFW Version

Sean, My shipment of my EOS EFW lens adapter and new mounting ring came in Friday, I just received them today as I was out on company travel Friday. Unfortunately the new EOS EFW lens adapter is now MUCH too tight. It is impossible to mate it to a lens now - it is so tight it can barely rotate at al...

Re: EOS Lens Adapter Loose - EFW Version

Sean, Ok thanks. Based on your comments, I have ordered a second EOS EFW compatible lens adapter, with the expectation that it sill not be loose like the 1st one. Additionally, I have also ordered the upgraded 78mm camera mounting ring as well. Thanks for the help. I will let you know if this does n...

Adding Shutter To Next ASI1600 Version

So with more and more vendors coming out with their own version of the famous ASI1600 that ZWO pioneered, the one feature I am still surprised is not out there is adding a true shutter. It is maybe not as important for situations where you are running your gear in person, but for remote installation...

EOS Lens Adapter Loose - EFW Version

When I have any of my Canon lenses mounted to my ASI1600MM-C camera I have a fair amount of play (looseness, lens turns after engagagement, along with wobble). I have the last version of the camera prior to the release of the Pro series, if that matters. I see this behavior with any of my Canon lens...

Any Lingering Issues With Using Dual ZWO Cameras?

Seems like in the past I recall at least some users having issues when trying to use 2 ZWO ASI cameras at a time - usually in a configuration with one camera guiding and one camera as the main imaging camera. I am a very happy owner of an ASI1600MM-C, but a not so happy owner of a QHY 5L-II guide ca...
