#17654 - Pyxis extender tube, 16mm. The extender tube moves the camera away from the Pyxis by 16 mm. Mounts between the camera mount and Pyxis. This is sometimes heeded if some member of the camera or camera filter wheel obstructs the Pyxis during rotation. In order for the CFW-8 (not the CFW-10) filter wheel from SBIG to be used, this adapter must be added to the T-thread camera mount, #17646. Use of this extender prevents the use of the NextGEN reducers because of the extended back focus distance.
The OPTEC-2300 circular dovetail mount is used by NextGEN line of telecompressors, the Pyxis 2-inch camera field rotator, the IFW 2-inch filter wheel, and the Perseus 4-port Instrument Selector.
These mounts allow easy connections from any of these devices to a variety of camera mount. One side of each adapter below has the Optec 2.3" dovetail mount and the other side presents a camera specific mount, such as the T-thread, or C-mount. If your camera or accessory is not listed, do not hesitate to call. We are constantly adding new adapters to our catalog.
Each camera mount below is held in place with three setscrews and can be adjusted a full 360-degrees for best rotational alignment.
