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.
This product normally recieves excellent reviews and is, at least, equivalent to many more expensive brands.
We can only assume yours is faulty.

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
08 December 2021  | 

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.

Good quality EOS Adaptor for full frame cameras
24 November 2020  | 

Good quality and well made adapter - camera seems very secure with no 'slack'. This adapter allows for full frame sensors (I have a Canon 5D (EOS)) and connected directly to my Celestron OAG with supplied adapters. Highly recommended if you need a quality camera adapter.
FLO as always were quick to send out, I ordered one evening, processed first thing and arrived next day. Thanks!

Mine did not fit skywatcher 0.9x coma corrector (I have gotten a replacement though!)
05 July 2020  | 

I bought this to use with my Sky-Watcher 0.9x Coma Corrector, but the threading of this did not match the threading of the coma corrector, the pitch must have been off, I do not know if I was unlucky or that they have a slightly different spec to them, anyways, I contacted FLO, let me send this back, I then bought a skywatcher branded adapter and that worked nicely, I thank FLO for the good customer service!

Again, I do not know if I was unlucky with a bad pitch on the threading or if this is something that all of them have!
