Cheers mate. The OAG has adapters for various threads and since the spacing between the reducer and the OAG isn't critical, I could use something off the shelf for that, but I've been unable to find anything.

Sure, to start getting a feel for the camera, I can use it without the flattener. It remains to be seen how bad the curvature is as well, but I assume I will need to use it. Still, to begin using it properly I'll need said adapters.

I'm not sure if there's a local adapter maker. I'd prefer to go local if anyone knows of someone.

Camera has now arrived, so I'll get to try and plug it all up tonight when I get home.
