If anyone has some threaded adapters or threaded spacers that they could part with, I am looking to buy some of various thread sizes to add to my library of threads.


Thanks.

I asked Joshua to create an adapter for my filter wheel based on one I had already, but with slightly different size to adjust the spacing.

While I haven't been able to do a real star test with the setup yet, internal testing suggests that it's now spot on for focus. Happy with the work and will no doubt use his service again for the almost inevitable need for another adapter somewhere...

Another one here with some custom adapters thanks to Josh.

A single solid threaded spacer to go between my OAG and camera, to replace my previous arrangement of four different spacers screwed together and a blanking plug to put on the back of my SCT for travel. The rubber caps fall off all the time and hard caps can be difficult to remove so something that can be retained by the spare tube nut I had is just the ticket.
