Locking ring doesn't fit when combined with Falcon Rotator

Post by xadn1 »

The OAG locking ring sticks out (outer diameter of ring is several mm too large) and doesn't fit when I combine the Scops OAG and Falcon Rotator using the M4 bolts. Unfortunately, the guide camera is really wobbly without that ring.

How am I supposed to attach the guide camera when using the OAG + Rotator combo?

Hey mate... they must not have many folks working here... most forum post get flat out ignored... a bit of a shame really... they make good stuff. To answer your question, I also had this issue, the only way I could solve this was by using PTFE thread seal tape around the thread, screw the camera in, no wobble now... Thing is for me the thread of the OAG on the telescope side does not thread properly onto my m54 0.75 connection of my Askar 107phq.. thread onto the falcon fine though.. matter of fact no m54 adapter with with a 0.75 that I have works beside the m54 male to m54 male from pegasus, and only one side actually... so I can't even use it the Scops OAG in from the falcon I have.
