EFW2 to Paracorr adapter
« on: January 24, 2013, 05:19:12 am »
Hi, all.  First post here.

I would like to be able to use my 383L+ and EFW2 with my Televue Paracorr.  Has anyone tried this combination?

There are two problems: finding an adapter from the Paracorr's 2.4" threads to the EFW2's M54 threads, and getting the back focus distance right.  The distance I can make up with threaded extension tubes. (The Paracorr's variable extension would put the sensor at least 29mm too far back, so I have to make up my own.)

Does anyone know where to find a 2.4" to M54 adapter?  Thanks.

Keith,

I don't know if it could be of any help, but I had a similar problem to connect the EFW2 to my Tak FS60-CB f/4.3 reducer, which also needs to stay at a precise distance from the camera CCD sensor. I ended up making a connector with the help of a local lathe workshop.

Although I haven't used it yet, a well know resource is (in case you already don't know it):

Good luck,
