The ED80 had an external thread on the focuser drawtube and the ED72 an internal one, I am still mystified by that decision. Apparently apart from that detail they are essentially the same focuser.

From the reducer you would need a 48m to T thread adapter and then T ring spacers and T ring to camera adapter if required to get the spacing right.

What adapter is available now ??
