Hello.

So I have decided to move to RASA 8.

Bought the Arizona filter slider for ASI183MM but i am unable to successfully attach it.

 

Let m explain it (as best as I can):

 

Once the filter slider is attached to the ASi183MM I screw then to the RASA 8 M42 camera adapter , which is held by the rasa retaining ring. Once the camera+ filter slider are all fully in, the slider interfere with the retaining ring and it doesn’t allow me to pull the slider out.
See attached photo where the filter slider and camera are fully screwed in (but with the impossibility for me to pull the slider out).

I have tried also inverting the direction of the slider but actually it made it worst (sinking in even more).

 

I have contacted OPT and waiting their feedback as I assume that the slider is defective (incorrect dimensions).

 

But i was wondering if anyone as incurred the same issue and can provide me some inputs.

thanks!

I've seen this problem on utube. Could have been Dylan ODonells channel. Can't remember exactly what he did to fix it, but seems to have worked.
