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

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...
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.
But the filterwheel should have a ca. M28.5-thread (the standard 1.25"-filterthread), so that you can insert the mounted filter, anyway.
as well as our Hyperion DT-Ring SP54/M62
and our Hyperion Stepper Ring M62/M72
Won't two appropriate filters work against each other?
You may want to take a look at our Baader Semi APO Filter, which combines a colour correcting filter for achromats with a Neodymium anti-lipghtpollution filter.
I take images with both 8" SCT and widefield 210 mm APO lens and in both setups I get this effect. It seems that I get too much of the red wavelengths.
What kind of filter solution do you recommend for astroimaging with a DSLR full spectrum modification?
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.
