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...
#2408343 for the eyepieces and a 2" for the star diagonal.
If you already own two single 2" polarizing filters, you can place one in the reducing adapter from 2" two 1.25" - most of them provide a 2" filter thread, or you can use one of ours: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/accessories/adapters-imaging-accessories/eyepiece-clamps.html?filter_threads_eyepiecesided=516&filter_threads_lenssided=523
If you insert a 2" filter into the body of a Hyperion, it will act like a finetuning ring with the length of the filter height (6 or 8mm, depending on the filter cell) and increase the focal length of the eyepiece. These rings and their effects are described e.g. in this PDF: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/downloads/dl/file/id/134/product/1210/hyperion_eyepieces_application_examples.pdf
Baader Polarizing Filter
To screw into 1¼ or 2" eyepieces/threads. Useful in Lunar and Solar observations to limit brightness and increasing contrast.
The filter can also be used with a Baader Hershel Wedge to provide an adjustable brightness. Positioned between the Baader Hershel Wedge and Eyepiece the filter/eyepiece combination can then be rotated to adjust brightness.
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.
