T ring for mounting to telescope

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

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!!

    • You might be frustrated with hunting autofocus of 60mm macro while framing moving subjects though. It's good with stamps or coins, not sure about pigeons.
    • Welcome to the forum Bill. To your question, having IS on may help but you also need to consider other factors. Something as simple as hanging a weight under the tripod will help (try using your camera bag), don't have the top column fully extended, check your Aperture and Shutter settings, for example are you working with a shallow depth of field? Also, if it was windy was your shutter speed fast enough - your subject may have moved in the wind. Finally try using the hyper-focal distance for fo
    • The Fuji 90 mm f/2 has approximately 12.5 cm x 8.4 cm field of view (1:5 magnification) at the close focusing distance of 0.6 m. I'm not quite sure if that's enough for "head and shoulder" portraits of birds, but it might work. The 80 mm f/2.8 macro will do 2.51 cm × 1.67 cm (1:1 magnification), which is definitely enough, while the 60 mm f/2.4 macro can reach 5 cm x 3,3 cm (1:2 magnification). (The Zeiss 50 mm f/2.8 macro can also reach 2.51 cm x 1.67 cm, by the way.) Your 18-55
