Sony-Miniolta A mount adaptor for Kowa TS 601

Unread postby Omega892 » Tue May 07, 2013 5:13 pm

I am looking for a Kowa TSN-CM2-MA adaptor for fitting a Sony Alpha to a Kowa TS 601 scope.

Found some, maybe, in the US, but shops don't seem to cater for overseas. Turning up blanks in the UK so far. Unless YOU know different.

TIA

if you don't find one in the UK then B&H will export (carriage & potentially import/VAT charges will increase the price some though.

Try srb-griturn - http://www.srb-griturn.com/

They made our T2 mount telescope/microscope adaptor tube with Alpha mounrt, many years ago. They can make almost any adaptor for telescopes. UK.

Thank you Heidfirst and David.

Your suggestion looked good as I found this item at SRB-Griturn http://www.srb-griturn.com/sony-alpha-37mm-eyepiece-digiscoping-protective-kit-4113-p.asp and it looks like this will do it. Am I correct, even though the far end looks barely large enough for the throat of the camera?

That's a T-mount on the far end, so one for Alpha might be bigger than the example shown. You can be pretty sure they will deliver a combination which works.
