starshoot pro V2 to focal reducer help need pretty please

Heya guys and girls have an issue here i'am trying to solve with using my focal reducer / flatter with the starshoot pro. The reducer has a 48mm out and my starshoot pro a 48mm in and also some other small though high pitch female thread after the 48mm. I need to get 55mm of spacing to get the reducer/flatterer doing its job. Where on earth do i find spacer rings to achieve this?

At a guess i would say this deeper thread would be sct 2"?

Now after i screw this piece off there is a 40mm approx thread on the main body of the ccd?


How do i get this thing in action with a 55mm distance, the sensor sits in 10.7mm going by the book and with the body's extension there's about 35mm so i'am at 45.7mm 9 mm short of my need

Jay, Bintel sell sets of spacer rings-they come as a set of 3, of differing thickness.
If you need thin ones, of 1mm or 2mm to get your spacing exact, they can be sourced from Edmund Optics
