This is a new Baader UFC D58 camera-side dovetail adaptor for the use of the UFC filter slider on all Baader 2″ prism and mirror star diagonals.
It comes with the necessary telescope-side screws to attach it to the Basder UFC Base. The camera-side of the adaptor allows secure attachment to a S58 dovetail with the six screws included. The optical path length of this adaptor is 7.2mm.
The images below show an example of the use of this UFC S58 dovetail camera adaptor. The Baader 2″ BBHS mirror diagonal features a telescope-side S58 dovetail “ring” with an internal 2″/SC thread where the 2″ nosepiece screws into. The outside of the ring is a dovetail profile and this S58 dovetail adaptor slides over the outside of this ring. The six screws supplied with the adaptor clamp the adaptor to the ring for secure attachment.
The image below shows the UFC attached to the BBHS diagonal. You can see the outside of the S58 adaptor “sandwiched” between the telescope side of the diagonal and the mirror-side of the UFC base showing one of the securing screws.
