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!!

    • I found this lens OIS quite lousy .  Very very far from the promised 4 stops. https://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/fujinon/xf-18-55mm-f2.8-4-r-lm-ois/image-stabilization-test/ Without Ois you need 1/125th sec for a 50mm lens, right ?  Ok, I agree. Then 1 stop gain means 1/60th .... 2 stop gain would mean 1/30th .... 3 stops 1/15th .... 4 stops 1/8th .  Right  ? Well ..... forget it !   All the promised Fuji stop gains are blatantly overstated !  Particularly with the XF18-55 le
    • I agree. Coming from xt2 and x100s, the xt4 is a huge disappointment in terms of build quality. I couldn’t understand how I acquired a serious mark on the ‘prism’ within 24 hours of arrival as I am a very careful user. Sad about this retrograde step.
    • I have just got a new xt4 and experienced the same issue. No apparent problem or damage but odd nevertheless and a bit disconcerting!  Did you get any responses?
    • Hello everybody, New Fuji owner from Michigan here. 😊 I've been a photographer since the 80s and have been shooting digital since 2003 (almost exclusively Canon.) Being someone who learned with film I've always had a pretty nice collection of vintage lenses and while they're alright on my DSLRs I've always wanted something a little better from them. I missed the look they gave me on my old film bodies. Since Covid-19 has kept me from working I felt it was a great time to explore mirror
