I recently picked up a very nice Miranda Laborec III camera. I intend to get it set up to use with my 8" SCR. Unfortunately it is missing the adapter ring on which I could add a telescope adapter. The camera has a dual mount system, an inner threaded mount which measures 43 mm, and an outer bayonet style mount which measures 51 mm on the ring and 53 mm on the flanges. I visited a local camera store but they were unable to find a an adapter ring that would fit. If anyone has information as to where I might locate an adapter ring, please message or email me at timed1@att.net   Thanks. 

Tim

I may have solved my problem. I found an adapter that converts the Miranda to a Nikon mount on EBay. I'll get it next week and report back as to whether it works. Any suggestions are still welcomed.

It's been about 35 years but I had one of those. I vaguely remember that it was just a T thread.
