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:

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...
But the filterwheel should have a ca. M28.5-thread (the standard 1.25"-filterthread), so that you can insert the mounted filter, anyway.
Stars and galaxies on the other hand shine in all colours, so their light is also partially blocked. There are no filters for stars and galaxies; you have to move to a darker observation site. Otherwise, the UHC-S will work also with smaller telescopes.
1¼" and 2" Baader UHC-S DeepSky Filter
Planeoptically PolishedAll Baader UHC-S DeepSky Filter
1¼", 2", 50.4 mm, 50x50 mm
Planeoptically polished for the highest images quality. Produces a much brighter image with superb contrast than a conventional Nebula filter. Excellent for openings from 100mm.
Baader UHC-S Nebula Filter with highest transmission and realistic star colours!
A new class of LPR Nebula filters finally delivering the happy medium, with enough light for smaller telescope openings at the same time with the high contrast of classical UHC filter.
Light pollution from street lights is blocked carefully. The filter is the sensible addition to all previous deep sky and UHC filters. Both for visual as well as photographic use.
All filters produce a brighter image and are optically polished with ultra-hard dielectric coatings. They are absolutely scratch resistant and can be cleaned as often as needed, ideally with Baader Optical Wonder Cleaning Fluid.
