My plans are to use this camera with a 200mm Canon L lens and possibly later with a 400mm, as to whether you can use this adapter with filters, I don't really know. That why I got a OSC, didn't want to use filters .

Cheers

Ok thanks. That is annoying for sure and misleading marketing as no where does it say you need another spacer.

Any idea how you would also use your ST-8300c with this adaptor and filters like 2 inch idas .

STI make a line of adapters.

I got one for Canon lenses to go on my ST4000XCM (John's old camera). Originally it was too long but I sent it back with the length required and Richard shortened it for me. Great service. Send him an Email, I am sure he will oblige.

Neale.

Hi

Anybody has any experience with this Baader Adapter, a cheaper alternative

M48x0,75 - 2" filterthread - CCD Adapter for Canon EOS lenses (EFS und EF)

I use this
Adapter from 2" barrel to T2 (Baader #2408150 - part 16) with the ST8300C and telescope and it allows for installing IDAS LPS 2"(48mm) filter.

Thanks in anticipation.

The stuff arrived today. An adapter for the SBIG ST8000C to mate with Canon EOS (EFS and EF) lens.

Alas cannot fit a 48mm screw in LPS filter.

Weather not so good. Will test with aircraft lights tomorrow night if cloud cover persist.

cheers

Patrick is good to deal with huh? Agreed, the 48mm filter will not fit, but a smaller one will, either a T thread version, or 1.25", according to the blurb on the listing. I'd be looking to see if you can actually "fit" a 48mm in there, inside somewhere, and maybe use something like "Blutac" to hold it, I've done this before.

I ended up ordering a custom adapter from PreciseParts, it is 26.5mm long and designed to accommodate the 44mm lens backfocus (EF Lens) and the 17.5mm front plate to chip distance on the ST8300C,

Should be dispatched on the 5 August.

Cheers

I ordered one from Hutech

He matched up the parts I needed and it also takes a 52 or 48mm filter with step down ring.

Just tell Ted what distance you need from chip and the lens type and he will sort it out.

Is this one here at the bottom of this page

http://www.hutech.com/astro/deepskycam/index.htm

Detals on site are very sketchy but just email them.

In case anyone stumbles across this thread (like me), SBIG now sells a Canon EOS Lens Adapter for ST-8300 that provides the correct back focus spacing for the ST-8300M with FW8-8300 filter wheel, or ST-8300C + spacer.
