I just ordered this camera but it is not clear how it goes into a telescope.  There is a 2” afapter in box but no picture of it and the picture I could find shows a shallow item less than 1/2” deep.  I was hoping there would be a 11/4” accessory as well.  For those that have this camera, how are you coupling it to the scope/focuser?  I am not planning to purchase the filter wheel and OAG right now.

It has M42 x 0.75 threads, attach any M42 adapter you wish.
