Cheers ken can you confirm that at all? Really hoping to find an adapter to use with my ccd to avoid the use of a 2" adapter as i'am using a ss pro v2 and don't want the play and chance it may come loose and drop out. Will try the T2 though I think ill end up with vignetting.

As measured...
I machined up an adaptor to use SCT fittings on the ED80 so it should work.....
