T ring for mounting to telescope

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I am interested using my XT2 for astrophotography, but am having some problems figuring out which T-ring I should pruchase to mount to my camera. I have a reflector telescope. I have been reading that T-rings for mirrorless cameras are more "tube-shaped"..due to how the camera operates, but some websites also sell narrower T-rings, called T-minus Rings. Could anyone provide some insight on whether I should purchase the T2 or T-minus ring?

Thanks for your help.

These folks sell Fuji adapter for telescopes as well... they have several Fuji options and will respond to any questions quickly. I have one on order.

Hi, 

I bought similar adapter (T2-FX), but I can’t take a photo, I connected it to telescope (I have sky watcher 150/750), aperture is set automatically to 0 (normalny I change it on a lens) and when I click to take a photo nothing happens, do I need another adapter or maybe to change something in settings? I have X-T20 model. Could someone help please? As I’m totally new to astrophotography

What image is there on the display screen?  You may need to consider an extension tube to achieve focus.  When an object is significantly out of focus its outline will not be seen - even if the scope/camera is centred on it the screen will look blank.  Have you checked whether the camera is lined up with the scope?  Can you do this in the daylight using terrestrial objects?  If I'm at a loss to find an object on my screen I will wait till the moon is out - that can't be missed!!

    • Is there any way to control shutter speed in fujix t200 other than in shutter priority mode?
    • I have just purchased a mint condition Fujifilm XS-1, I had one back in 2013 and regretted selling it. I have tried so many different cameras but kept getting frustrated because I hate carrying loads of gear around and trying to decide what lens to put on was driving me mad. I came to the conclusion that I want a super zoom camera with a good quality lens and excellent photo quality. The Sony RX10iii would probably be my ideal camera but at around £1200 or more, it is way too expensive for me. S
    • Welcome to our forum and thank you for your self introduction
    • Must be the lens. I have had that lens for over a year and it is one of my most used lens. Pictures are always sharp.
    • Just bought the 23mm f2 lens with enthusiasm for some great shots only to be let down by every image having a hazy look to them. Has anyone else experienced this? I may have a faulty lens but I was surprised at this since every other lens from Fuji I've tried and own is tack sharp. Returning this one for sure but curious if anyone else has seen this.
