I recently ordered a new Takahashi 100DF and need help setting it up for imaging. I have multiple Canon camera bodies but will be using the full-frame 6D MKII for most imaging. 

 

What items (brackets, adapters, etc..) are needed to create this setup? I've looked at the visual system chart provided by Takahashi but can't seem to get this figured out. Thru online searching I've seen Canon EOS adapters with different item numbers and conflicting information. What (if anything) do I need?

 

Can anyone help me figure out what needs to be purchased to mount this body to the OTA so I can start shooting? Thanks so much!

Do you plan to use it naked without a focal reducer?

Will not be using the reducer - maybe in the future though.

In that case there is no critical backfocus distance required and you have a fairly free choice.  But I've got to be honest, the system diagram is not very clear if you're not using a reducer.  It seems to assume you'll push a camera adapter into the eyepiece adapter.

Good to know. Thanks for the info!
