Product Details

  • Set of three 1 mm thick spacer rings that can be used in special circumstances to modify the back focus spacing of your field flatteners or telecompressor connectors.

    Here are some recommendations from Astro-Physics to achieve proper spacing.

    • Increase the spacing by adding one, two, or three spacer rings to 2.7" extensions (EXT27-...) in your imaging train
    • If you own a field flattener or TCC telecompressor corrector with male 3.27" threads, first you can reduce the distance by switching to a shorter 3.27" back focus spacer extension (EXT327-...). Then, you will either add the appropriate number of these 2.7" rings to achieve the optimum spacing, use the 3.27" spacer rings (SRSET-327), or a combination of both. You can easily experiment with 1 mm increments
    • These spacer rings are designed to easily slip over the 2.7" thread of the telecompressor correctors and CCD field flatteners
