This device is specially made to connect cameras with Micro 4/3 lens mount to telescopes. The adapter is compatible with Olympus Micro 4/3 and Panasonic Lumix G cameras (see note below).
You fit one end of this adapter ring to the camera’s main body (in place of the camera lens), and connect the other end either to a 1.25″ or 2″ T-adapter, or directly to the threaded eyepiece section of your telescope if available. For example, the Nipon 800×80 scope’s eyepiece holder has a M42x1mm thread for adapter connection. You can then take pictures through the scope. In effect, this device enables you to use the telescope lens as your camera lens for digi-scoping.
- Compatible with Olympus Micro 4/3 cameras and Panasonic Lumix G cameras with the same micro 4/3 lens mount.
- M42x0.75mm threads for telescopes and/or T-adapter connection.
- Built with metal material and black anodized.
- This T-ring (T2 mount) is a thin version and the distance between the front and rear flanges is 7mm. This enables you to see a larger or full image on the camera.
