I want to mount my QHYCCD 128C to a Rokinon 135mm lens.  I bought what I believe to be the correct kit, the 'Combo D3', consisting of the bayonet, assorted spacers and a 2.5mm spacer that mounts against the 128C itself and is supposed to hold the 2" IR/UV cut filter.

 

Problem is, when the filter is screwed into this spacer, the spacer flange doesn't fit flush to the camera body, the filter protrudes too far and prevents the spacer from seating.  Without the filter everything fits fine.  Am I just plain missing something?

Thanks in advance for any help,

 

Craig.

Moving to a more appropriate forum since this is the Equipment (No Astrophotography) forum. (Emphasis added).
