More T2, Vicar?

Setting up cameras on my telescopes has shown up a distinct lack of all the fiddly little bits of kit that you don’t think about 🙁 In particular, extensions to fit T2 threads on cameras, and male-to-male converters to fit into filter wheels.

Today the postman arrived with a few handy bits that will help out. First, from First Light Optics, a couple of the male-to-male converters to screw into filter wheels:

And second, from SRB Photographic, a couple of these. A 40mm T2 extension tube. The nice thing about these ones is that the male T2 thread is relatively short. It’s often a problem when fitting T2 threads into filter wheels that the thread extends inside the wheel body and fouls the filters or even the carousel. That shouldn’t be a problem with these.
