If you have a look at the image I posted you will see that the nose piece has been ground down at the shoulder near the camera body. I used a dremel to remove the shoulder. That meant I could get the DMK about 3 or 4 mm closer to the pst. The whole adapter new fits right into the PST no with the camera sitting on hard on top of the Eyepiece holder of the pst. I have np getting focus now

Yeah I did the same mod to my nosepiece under Paul's expert remote guidance and encouragement. I used a bench grinder though. I found I also had to shorten the nosepiece as well. I think it measured something like 6-7mm longer than Paul's and stopped the camera getting as close as I needed it. If you do have to shorten the nosepiece, use an old piece of hacksaw blade to clean out the thread after you've ground it.
