Cheaply made.

When I attach this to my cc it comes loose, and when I tried tightening the thread it broke the grub scews rendering it useless.


The grub screws are used to tighten the two parts together. It should not be possible to break a grub screw so please get in touch, and we will replace this.

A good fit

As a new person starting out doing astrophotography, I was little confused about T rings and m48 and m42. So Asked about this and saw a T ring, and ask would this fit my camera to my telescope, he said yes. So I ordered one from FLO and came by post. And it fits nicely on my camera to my telescope. Thanks for a great service, will be using FLO again.

Yet another one

As a relative newcomer to all this malarkey, I am somewhat perplexed at the fact that I now own 4 different adapters for my either my DSLR or camera lenses. They're great, don't get me wrong, but I never realised when I signed up, that M48 and M42 doodads of varying dimensions would be such a prevalent thing in my life. Shopping with FLO is always a delight and such an educational experience as well! Happy days

Used this m48 adaptor to connect redcat51 to canon dslr eos200d. Correct backfocus acheived. Seems like a nice piece of kit. Sturdy.

Cheap for a reason
27 December 2022  | 

Received along with a Sharpstar 61 EDPH and reducer/flattener. The first times I used the setup, I had severe tilt in my images. Upon googling, I found that it was a common occurrance with the reducer/flattener which has a built-in rotator with 3 adjustment screws. I loosened, turned and made sure that they were all tightened with the equal amount of pressure, but the tilt was still present. Today on a whim, just for the sake of testing, I switched the Astro Essential M48 ring with the M48 from Sky-Watcher I have mounted on my Sky-Watcher 80ED, and the tilt completely disappeared. Get a proper Adapter, not this one. I've already ordered a replacement.


Hi Tommy,
We are baffled and perplexed.

I wish i'd known that this was already included...

I wasn't aware that this adapter was included with the scope I ordered - would've been nice for FLO to follow up with an "are you sure" email to be sure I really needed it - after all why would someone order a second one when you can only have one camera connected to the scope at a time...

Does the job

Using one on the Stellamira 90mm Triplet with the Stellamira 2" 0.8 Reducer and a modded Canon 600D. Does what it supposed to do, not much to say really. I would knock it down half a star as there's a little play between the camera and it but it's not effected my images in anyway.
