Do you think that 2" BDS-SC Focuser can replace the Zero Image Shift Microfocuser on 10" LX-200-ACF (GPS + AutostarII / Dated 2009) from Meade ? Or can you propose another solution with fine-focus mechanism, even it is in manual mode ? Thank you very much for your answer.
To mount the 2" UV filter in front of your camera, you need:
- Baader DSLR-2" Filter Holder M48/SP54 # 2408166
- Baader Hyperion DT-Ring SP54/M49 for DTAdapter II&III and Hyperion Eyepieces # 2958049
Then you can attach it in front of your lens with the M49-filter thread. For other lenses, we have different stepper rings starting with SP54
If the built-in UV/IR-filter of your camera has been removed, then the sensibility in UV depends only on the UV-transmission (and sharpness) of your lens in UV. You'll have longer exposure times, as only the blue-sensors of your colour-camera will receive light, but it should not be worse than e.g. infrared-photography.
A non-modified DSLR (with the UV-filter still inside) will not work.
