Greetings Fellow Stargazers,
Only my second post here. I have two newer eyepieces (Orion Sirius Plossl 32mm & 40mm) that are too large to fit into my standard 1.25" T-adapter. With the rubber grips these eyepieces are 42mm diameter, but the T-adapter will only take up to 35.5mm. I looked around online for a larger body T-adapter but couldn't find one. Wondering if this might work as a solution:
I see how that's supposed to work ... I'd screw my Canon T-ring (and any required spacers) to this device, then just mount my DSLR as usual. The DSLR is an early model Canon 20D and the body weighs like 1.5 lb. What I'm wondering is if those 3 metal set screws that hold it to the eyepiece are beefy enough to hang my camera on w/o skewing the optical path?
Does anyone here have experience with this product? Or can anyone suggest a better solution? Thanks.
