MILC telescope adapter.

* MILC TELESCOPE ADAPTER CNC Parts Supply now offers a low-profile T-adapter for Mirrorless interchangeablelens cameras (MILC). The T-Minus 2" UltraWide Adapter ($89) allows users to attach these Sony and Olympus MILC directly to any T-threaded accessory. Normal stock T-adapters for these cameras incorporate a 37-mm-long integrated tube (shown below at right) to allow for the proper spacing required to place a conventional 35-mm camera lens at the optimum distance from the camera's sensor. The T-Minus 2" UltraWide Adapter eliminates this unnecessary spacing to allow users to incorporate additional accessories between the camera and telescope, such as filter wheels or off-axis guiders. The adapter allows telescopes with limited focus range to use MIL cameras without the need of custom modifications. Currently available for the Olympus PEN series, Panasonic/Lumix G series, and Sony NEX series cameras.
