Hello everyone.

I have just taken delivery of a new SkyWatcher ED-100 Triplet Refractor to use as a wide-field scope with my ZWO camera.

The manual for the scope says I need an adaptor ring that will fit the camera (of course) but on the other end has a: "Female M66x1 thread" to attach to the included field flattener that came with the telescope.

Anybody know of a good source for this?

Sam,

The ED-100 comes with it's own "100 Field Corrector" specifically designed for that one scope and the manual says that because it's so specific for that instrument that it outperforms any third party product.

So what I need is the adaptor ring to mate the camera to their supplied corrector, which the manual says I need a "Female M66x1 thread" on the part that mates to the corrector.

Can I get that here or does anybody know where I can get one?

Bill

Ok then, can you tell me the thread style or configuration (whatever the correct term is) for the camera itself? Is it in my documentation somewhere?

That way I could order the adaptor from a 3rd party that might not know anything about your products specifically, but could match the thread descriptions and I could get one that way.
