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.

Josh helped me out with a custom adapter for my Qhy cmos camera and FSQ.
Had three components before to thread together now only one . Great communication and price, thanks Josh

I got Joshua to make a custom adapter from M48 to 2.7" A-P to attach my camera with OAG. After some discussion he came up with a suitable design that worked perfectly - very happy with his work and attention to detail. I also got him to make a blanking plate (dust cap) for the 2.7". Both at a fraction of the price I would have had to pay elsewhere. Certainly gets my recommendation - thanks Joshua.

I have just had an adapter made by Josh. The adapter works well and his service is very good. I will use his service again in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking for an adapter.

You should also check the Teleskop-Service website - they have a huge range of adapters.

Or people could support a local Aussie making high quality custom adaptors. I know which I prefer! (ALL my adaptors have been locally made by either Hugh Esmond or Stefan Buda with exceptional quality and finish). I may try Josh eventually too

They certainly do have a large range of adapters but they donít have a 5.8mm M54 extension tube or anything else I needed

Thankyou for all the support, Paul, Stuart, Colin and Lewis!
Here are a few pictures of the parts I have made so far (some duplicates) as well as a couple of pictures where I'm checking the tilt or run out in other adapters sent to me for diagnosing adapter tilt etc. which is another service I am offering. In this example, I'm testing some adapters for run-out as well as the Gemini focuser rotator for rotation run-out.


If you'd like some adapters making, more than likely, I can help. Send me an Email to scastrophotography@outlook.com or call me on 0428650851... Thanks again!
