I'm currently in the process of upgrading my astrophotography setup but have hit a snag and am hoping to get some hints on how to proceed.
My setup includes:
- Vixen R200SS
- Vixen Coma Corrector PH
- ZWO ASI6200MM Pro
- ZWO 2" EFW with their 2" LRGB+SHO filters
- ZWO EAF (not relevant to this post)
As you may be able to tell, I need to ensure that the entire image train is well suited for full-frame imaging.
In theory, all of these components work well for full frame imaging, however, I'm having a hard time avoiding a reduction to M42.
I've read about many people making this work, though somehow, I haven't been able to identify the components that they ended up using.
The focuser on the R200SS has a M60 female thread.
The telescope comes with a reducer from M60 to M42, which has an internal thread on the telescope side for M56.
This M56 "accessory" thread is very important since it is what the coma corrector attaches to.
Vixen sells a similar component called the Direct Wide Photo Adapter, but I don't see how it could be utilized without going to a DSLR-style thread.
Any insights would be much appreciated, thanks
