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.
In short I can say that it works very fine. Below are some photos of the setup and some shots I have taken with this adapter. Just two 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.
