C-mount Solution

C-mounted auto guider cameras looks getting more popular these days. I didn’t pay attention to how to attach C-mounted cameras with 7315(small helical focuser).  But this is the solution. It’s not beauty. But it’s rigid anyway.

Parts configuration is 7315 – 7855 – 7526 – c-mount cameras. This makes total light path 5mm longer than the conventional t-thread connection. So it might require the system re-configuration if the existing system will be converted . But Lodestar should work by simply adding above two parts since this camera’s flange back is around 5mm shorter than C-mount standard if the data I have is correct.  It is possible to adjust by changing various extension tubes even if necessary.
