So I have three M42 film lenses that I've adapted to m4/3. I am planning on using them with my ASI071mc pro as well. They were a cinch to adapt to astro as m42 to t2 adapters are readily available and getting the spacing right wasn't too hard as I didn't have to figure in a filter wheel or OAG. I just got an awesome 90mm 2.8 Panagor macro lens that I'd love to use for astro as well. The catch is it is an OM mount lens. This presents a conundrum as to the easiest way to convert it to a t2 thread. I'd like to do this without having to stack adapters. Novoflex makes a OM to m39 adapter that would get me a thread to adapt to t2 and then space properly with t2 tubes, but it's not cheap and I'd have to source it somewhere in the US.
A more complicated route would be an OM to EF adapter and then an EF to t2 adapter. The good ones (EF to t2 adapters) run $100 plus. Sigh. I checked and a custom adapter made through PreciseParts would run over $200. Anyone have a spare used Novoflex laying about? Or does anyone know an easier way to convert an OM mount to a threaded mount like M39 or M42? I will still be using this lens on my m4/3 camera and don't want to change the lens mount in any permanent fashion.
Thanks for the help and clear skies!
