Spacer rings for those who may be interested

Thought I would just share my recent find when I was trying to line up CCD with OAG . Baader make these pack of 15 T2 spacers of various thickness
to help get you all lined up straight and also act as a washer to stop those
metal to metal surfaces from sticking .
I got these off ebay .

That's a good find Mark, can you tell us the range of thicknesses they provide. From the photo it looks like maybe only 1 -3 mm thick??

They range from fractions of a mm to maybe 1mm thick and made from a stiff tough nylon it appears

From the ebay site, it mentions 0.6/0.8/1.0/1.2/1.4mm thick. I guess 3 of each?

That sounds about right I wasn't to concerned about the actual measurements myself as it's just trial and error as to what thickness will work as it's probably different for everyone but the quality is better than I expected.
