I have a Takahashi FS-60CB and would like to use standard 48mm filters for astrophotography with a DSLR, but have been unable to figure out where one would install them. Using DSLR clip filters is not an option for me. Going through the Takahashi system chart for the FS-60CB (https://www.takahash..._CBVisualChart/), there are many interfaces between the OTA and the camera. I have the Multi Flattener 1.04x, and the Camara Angle Adjuster, in addition to the other spacers that came with the telescope. None of these has a 48mm thread. Has anyone solved this problem with some sort of adapter? Perhaps I am overlooking something obvious.

 

Thanks,

Richard
