I just purchased a Flipmirror II and I need to connect it to my Meade RCX400 14". Can you give me a list of the exact pieces I need to purchase to make that happen? I'm assuming I need this and a 40 mm extension tube to get to the flip mirror and then a connector to the camera (Meade DSI IV) and connector for 2 inch eyepiece. Also a connector for an off axis guider but I know which one I need for that. Thanks for your help!
If your telescope does have a standard 2" SC-thread, you can use this adapter to connect the FlipMirror either directly to your telescope, or through a T-2-extension, if desired.
You need to bring the camera sensor and the field stop/image plane of the eyepiece into the same distance from the FlipMirror.
For a 2" eyepiece, you can use
#2956242 M42i x 0.75-ClickLock (Astro T-2 System) - 36,6mm long
plus a 1.25"-adapter like
Baader 2" to 1¼" ClickLock Reducer (T-2 part #15B) # 2956214 - 9.5mm long
Baader Pushfix Reducer 2" to 1¼" (T-2 part #15a) # 2408151 - 1mm long
But we usually recommend a 1.25" focussing eypiece clamp instead, to do some fine adjusting between camera and eyepiece. Or you can use a clamping ring to set one eyepiece to the same focus as the camera. Usually, the focus position of several eyepieces is slightly different.
I can't find the backfocus of your camera to determine how many T-2-extensions you need for the camera.
