#17648 & #17657 - Pyxis SCT thread mount. Some cameras from Apogee and others use this 2" x 24 TPI thread. This thread also is common for the small MeadeCelestron telescopes, AO-7 and f/6.3 reducer. Use the short thread version #17648 for the Apogee cameras and the long thread version #17657 for everything else.
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.
