Adapter allowing to connect SONY E-mount mirrorless cameras to Celestron RASA 8 telescope.
After connecting to the camera’s bayonet connector, the whole thing is screwed onto the telescope using the built-in large nut with M87 thread. The device has an internal thread allowing to mount a 2″ filter.
The adapter is equipped with a Front Tilting Mechanism that allows you to adjust the tilt of the sensor. A special 0.6mm washer is included, which, in addition to working with the sensor tilt adjustment system, also allows for possible extra backfocus tuning.
Here’s some additional information you might want to review before making a purchase:
- Adapter for Sony E-mount cameras and RASA 8
- Backfocus and tilt – general discussion
- Filter drawers and adapters – results and experiments
- Front Titlting Mechanism
- User manuals
The base of the product are 3D printed elements made of PET-G CF filament (polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified reinforced with carbon fiber).
Note: In the sensor tilt adjustment mode, so when working with the attached washer, the outer diameter of the 2″ filter housing must not exceed 50.7 mm.
The last three photos in the gallery above show the washer and its dimensions.
