Hi Arek

Pure guesswork here, so I might be wrong!

I think that the DMK connects via a “C” Mount and at a guess, I’d think that the filter wheel has a standard “T” Mount?

I think that the DMK has female threads, so you would require a Male “C” thread.

I’m guessing that the Atik filter wheel might have Female “T” threads, so you would require a Male “T” threaded adapter?

Cheers

Dennis

The Atik filter wheel actually has male T thread on the camera side so you will need that side of the adapter to have female thread. Not sure about the DMK but something like this should do it.

Thanks guys.
That's exactly what I need -T-mount female (M42 x 0.75) to C-mount male (1" or 25.4mm) adapter.
Thanks for your help.

Cheers
Arek
