For adapting any cell mounted Baader 2 inch Filter onto a camera lens with 52mm front filter thread you will need:
#2408166 Baader DSLR 2" Filter-Holder M48 / SP54: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/baader-dslr-2%22-filter-holder-m48sp54.html
#2958052 Baader Lens-Adapter-Ring SP54 / M52: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/baader-hyperion-dt-ring-sp54m52-for-dtadapter-iiandiii-and-hyperion-eyepieces.html
Based on the SP54 thread, we offer many more adapters for various camera threads, our so-called Hyperion DT-rings. https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/catalogsearch/result/?q=sp54
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 dozen 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 adaptation 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...

It might be possible with Baader DSLR-2" Filter Holder M48/SP54, # 2408166, but I didn't try it out - it has got a length of 5mm, then you'd have no more eye relief and wouldn't be able to look through the eyepiece...
You can insert 2"-filters between the 1.25" nosepiece and the 2" body of the eyepiece, but this will change the focal length of your eyepiece to ca. 4-4.5mm as described in this PDF: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/de/downloads/dl/file/id/134/product/1209/hyperion_eyepieces_application_examples.pdf
The recommended solution would be a 2"/1.25"-reducer with 2" filter thread, if your telescope has got a 2"-focuser: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/accessories/adapters-imaging-accessories/eyepiece-clamps.html?filter_adapters_type=244&filter_threads_lenssided=575
Baader Double Polarizing Filter
To screw into 1¼ or 2" eyepieces/threads. The two filters can be rotated against each other to always be able to achieve comfortable brightness level for moon observations, independent of moon phase. The Baader Double Polarizing Filter can also be used for solar observations in combination with an objective sun filter from Astro Solar Film.
The double polarizing filters in 1¼ or 2" can not be splitted into two parts, so you can't take one half as a single filter e.g. for a Herschel wedge. The reason for this is more stability and quality: If both housings could be separated, they may move or be tilted to each other, which could harm the image quality and cause reflexions.
Important Information for Observing the Sun
Polarizer and neutral density filters need additional filtering (for example, Herschel Prism or Astro Solar Safety Film) before the eyepiece of the telescope for observations of the sun. Using without the appropriate filters can cause damage to the these filters and eyesight.
