2"/T-2 Tapered Nosepiece (AP16T)
This item is out of stock but you can place an order now and we’ll ship when it becomes available.
2"/T-2 Tapered Nosepiece for SBIG CCD Cameras, SBIG STV, Baader Planetarium Mark V or Giant Binocular Viewer or any item with T-2 threads. This nosepiece features our unique tapered profile. Attach it to your CCD camera, insert the nosepiece into your 2" adapter and tighten the thumbscrew. The brass locking ring will seat your valuable CCD camera (or other valuable accessory) squarely and solidly into place. The nosepiece has 48 mm filter threads and the I.D. is painted flat-black. Compatible with most compression/locking rings that we know of. Not recommended for our 92mm f/5 or f/7 Stowaway or when using our older style 2" Thin Adapter ADA20132 (or prior version ADA201). When using these items, we suggest the BP16 nosepiece. The current style 2" Thin Adapter ADA20132 was specifically designed to work perfectly with the AP16T.
To see the nosepiece as used with a CCD camera, review the exploded diagram. Note that this is a PDF file. Read hint for viewing this two-page diagram. If you own an Astro-Physics focuser, you also may wish to consider our 2" Adapter (ADA2003) that features 3 locking screws. The combination of these two accessories will redefine "rock solid."
