In this article I write about my experience with the Fujifilm X-T1 2″ Telescope adapter from telescopeadapters.com. Some time ago I bought the Fujifilm X-T1 camera. It didn’t last quite long – then I wanted to connect it to my telescope 🙂 At first it was quite hard to find a suitable adapter. After searching the web I finally found http://www.telescopeadapters.com/.
They offer an adapter to connect the X-T1 to an 2″ focuser. However, as always I was not sure if this thing is really going to work and if everything fits together. Still, it was worth a try and so I placed an order.
Below are some photos of the setup:
There are just two minor things I ran into:
- When I pressed the trigger no picture was taken. After calling the support it turned out that the solution was quite simple: You have to enable “Shoot without lens” in the camera menu. Otherwise the chip will not be exposed to the light because the camera thinks there is no protection in front of the sensor.
- When connecting the adapter to your X-T1, make sure that the red dots on the camera and on the adapter lie on top of each other. Otherwise the adapter does not lock.
