This useful adapter was suggested by Rob / Uranium235 from Stargazers Lounge to enable him to directly connect his manual Canon fit Samyang 135mm lens to his astronomy camera.
Swapping the Samyang bayonet adapter is nice and easy. Simply by removing the three screws.
There is enough back focus room to fit a filterwheel and / or filter drawer into the optical chain (subject to camera / filterwheel).

Just got it today March 10 2021, I will try it as soon as the weather permits. The adapter seems to be of good quality.
Works on Minolta/Sony A Mount version.

The adapter also works on the Minolta/Sony A Mount version, probably also on all other versions? I was able to realise an OAG setup on the Samyang.

A well-made adapter, easy to fit and excellent low profile. You can also use it to connect directly to an EFW2 ATIK filter wheel via the ZWO adapter https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/zwo-m54-to-m48-adapter-short.html. This adds no back focus and is ideal for the job. If only FLO offered a T2-threaded version...

This is perfect for removing tilt when connecting a Samyang 135mm canon fit lens to my qhy183c
