What step down adapter is suggested from a 52 mm to "-- mm"?
For adapting any cell mounted Baader 2 inch Filter onto a camera lens with 52mm front filter thread you will need:

What degradation or other issues occurs at these slower speeds?
Even using these filters at f/3.8 might already result in a small loss of signal - that is - longer exposure time and consequently contrast might suffer a bit. Other than that - due to the mismatch some offband light might reach the chip but it shouldn´t be a huge concern. The most problematic filter is the H-alpha. Both SII and OIII have two emission lines which are close to each-other, so you will still be able to get part of both these lines. H-alpha in comparison to the other two, has a really tight bandwith.
Both thread sizes come with our proprietary pitch - which is not the same for the female and male threads.
This is our own proprietary "emergency solution" for uniting a world were manufacturers all over the world copy from each other - to the point that there are almost a dozend different pitches in use for male and female threads. Traditionally US-companies used to do a UNF-based pitch and the rest of the world went for metric threads - but these do vary from 0.5 to 0.75.
For this reason it does not make sense to publish our non standard pitch because our pitch is made to cope with all existing metric and US-pitch standards - and as said - our solution has evolved from sheer necessity. It is a mixture of a queer pitch and under-/over-dimensioning . We will not want to declare this as a standard and get bashed up for it. It works for us and is a result of 20 years adapation to fit our filters onto all crazy threads we have seen. And inspite of this - every now and then there comes another "dragonboat-eyepiece" were even our filters may not fit...
