M48 Female to T2 Male Adapter Converter for Hypercam (with Easy Grip)
The M48 Female Filter-Thread to T2 T-Thread Male Converter let's you attach your Hypercam (which has a female T2-Thread in the front) to various to various M48 accessories, such as Altair Planostar M48 Field Flatteners and Reducers, OAGs and filter wheels.
The converter increases the optical path length by 5.2mm, which is necessary to provide an extremely rigid connection when converting between threads, without misalignment.
A special "Easy Grip" scalloped outer ring makes the ring easier to tighten or loosen to reduce sag between your camera and telescope.
The Easy Grip feature makes it easy to attach and detach without getting the adapter "stuck" and it acts as a flange upon which to align the components accurately, without flex.
The converter has an M48 Female Filter-Thread on one side, and a T2 T-Thread Male thread on the other side.
Tip: A VERY small amount of WD40 or wax on the threads will make the product easier to remove after extended use.
