I have been searching high and low, buying adapters and connectors that don't do want I need them to. (even if the listing says it will)

 

Is there a natively-connecting adapter for the Nikon Z series full frame cameras to the Evostar 72ED?!? Or more specifically, connecting my Nikon to the SVBONY field flattener that I have, because after that it should connect to the rest of my equipment just fine. I can't find it, nor can I make the pieces that I do have connect to my telescope/Z6 in any working way.

 

Equipment:

 

Nikon Z6

SkyWatcher Evostar 72ED

Orion Dielectric 2" Diagonal

SVBONY 0.8x Field Flattener

 

Adapters:

 

Baader Wide-T-Ring D52 for Nikon Z

VIVITAR T-2 - Nikon Z

48mm female thread - Nikon F mount (accidentally purchased) it threads perfectly to the field flattener, but obviously wont fit my Z6.

 

I know some of the adapters I have weren't designed for the Z6, but as I said, I've been trying to find a way to make it work, e.g. the $250 Nikon FTZ adapter that I don't want to purchase.

I also know this might sound like a silly problem to more seasoned imaging astronomers, but It's been driving me crazy for months!

 

What the hell am I missing?? I can add photos or more info if needed.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Joe

I've used this place before for adapters etc which might be worth a look.....(based in the US as well)

they aren't exactly cheap, but it looks like they'll work!! thanks for the link, I'm kind of surprised I haven't heard of this company before.

 

Cheers

I have an adapter for Fujifilm, and looks like this one.

 

There's also this one, that is not cheap but has a filter drawer:
