Omegon T-2 ring for Minolta AF - basic adapter for bayonet to T2 thread
This Omegon T-ring lets you adapt the bayonet of your SLR camera to the T-2 thread used as a standard fitting in amateur astronomy. There are a large range of adapters that use it.
What do I need to connect my camera to the telescope?
First, remove the lens from your camera. Then attach this T-2 ring onto the bayonet fitting. You will then see a T-2 female thread, to which you can connect virtually any astronomical adapter.
You can connect, for example, a T-2 camera adapter (item 1250) or a focal reducer. These adapters have a T-2 male thread and fit directly onto your T-ring.
This combination fits directly onto the focuser of your telescope - firmly attaching your camera to the telescope.
The advantages in a nutshell:
- T-2 ring from the camera bayonet to T-2
- base ring for connecting an SLR camera to a telescope
- connect any T-2 adapter to this ring.
