What is a T2 connection ?? new
      #3993414 - 08/19/10 05:09 PM

I have a binoviewer that came with all sorts of adapter things I cant exactly make out. The blurb says T2 connection is included. Is that a screw thread ? And what is such a thing usually used for ? There is also an attachent where the two parts just press together and are held together from the side by a tiny hex bolt. Maybe that ones is called a bayonet ?

T2 is a metric size (M42 x 0.75) that is the "T-thread" you hear about with cameras. It's bigger than 1.25 inches, but smaller than 2 inches.

It sounds like you got a set of Baader binoviewers. They all have T2 threads of some sort and have a ton of accessories and options. I suggest you cruise around the Alpine Astro web site FMI.

The bayonet fitting should have two tiny "lips" opposite the bolt and it is used to attach the focuser adapter fitting to the nose of the Mark V binoviewer.

Cheers,

Ron
