Baader UFC S70 / RASA 8" Adapter (Bauhöhe: 1,4 mm)

The latest addition of the UFC-family - the new RASA 8 / S70 UFC-Adapter (#2459136) - is compatible with 13 mm back-focus cameras such as ATIK Horizon. The UFC allows to change any kind of filter from 1 1/4" up to 50x50 mm square in front of the RASA 8.

The only function, that still might be left to desire, is an easier way to reach the front adjustment hex-screws of the RASA 8. Due to the very short backfocus available, it is somewhat difficult to reach these screws and to "tweak" the star sizes in each corner of the image to absolute perfectness.

So - in order to even reach this goal (exchange filters AND effortlessly adjust the camera tilt), in February latest we will launch a separate product - only produced for the RASA 8: the FCCT (Filter Changer & Camera Tilter). This unit will feature 3D-printed filter sliders and be only able to accept filters in diameters of 31 mm / 36 mm / and 2"(47.4 mm) w/o cell mount. This is a revolution for the RASA 8 since it makes perfect adjustment of all stars in the field a joy. Already now the first imagers are using this solution as prototypes and the results are outstanding, see here:

Baader UFC with RASA 8 - Atik 460ex or ASI 1600 MM
The Baader UFC is the only adapter that is compatible with a 13mm backfocus ccd like the Atik 460ex and RASA 8.

This adapter allows me to use a one shot color or monochrome camera.

Have a look at the attached image.

  • Easy to configure.
  • I am not sure if camera rotation is possible?
Thanks for your kind review! Regarding your question:
The camera can be rotated by releasing the fastening screws wich holds the UFC base to the UFC/RASA8 Adapter. It is not possible to rotate the camera according to the UFC Body, given the very limited BF of the design.
A more complex design would allow for this but would be way more expensive.
