Extension to allow fixing of QHY5 to ST80 ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I am now using a QHY5 as my guide camera on an ST80.

At the moment i use the QHY5 with its nose adaptor and feed that into a (lens removed ) barlow to get the extra focuser travel.

I see that you can remove the nosepiece off the QHY5 and screw the camera onto the focuser tube (1.25").

Does anyone know of a 2" long adaptor that has the thread on the end to accept the QHY5 ?

Have a look in the Scopes'n'skies astro boot section, there's usually a few T-T extension tubes in there, I bought a couple myself to attach my guide cam to my ST 80, and my Skymax127 around a fiver each.
