Baader Wide-T-Ring to connect Minolta DSLR cameras on the Astro T-2 system
All Baader Wide-T-rings have an S52 dovetail in addition to the inserted T-2 ring. This allows the T-ring to be modified to an M48 female thread using theS52 / M48 adapter #2958552, or to use theS52 barrel #2958551without the T-2 reduction. With theS52 / M68 adapter # 2458252, the Wide-T-Ring can be directly attached to an M68 male thread to securely fasten your camera to the widest possible aperture.
All Baader Wide T-rings can be directly adapted to an UFC (Universal Filter Changer) with the optional Baader UFC S52 dovetail camera-adapter(#2459119), in order to change different filter sizes directly in front of the camera sensor.
Furthermore, the illumination of the camera chips improved significantly, mainly because of the larger clear aperture.
