About this product

Model:  flo_m48-m48_tilt_adjusters

You know the problem, you have achieved the best possible focus but in one or two corners the stars still aren’t quite right. Perhaps it is a tilted sensor or an accessory that isn’t quite orthagonal to the optical axis. 

A tilt adjuster enables you to make minute adjustments in real-time until you find the sweet-spot, regardless of what is causing the tilt. 

To use simply loosen the small setting screws then adjust one of the larger adjustment screws, watching the affect it has on the image. When you have found the sweet-spot retighten the setting screws. 

M48 female to M48 male

Adds approx 9-10mm to the optical path.

Okay but could be better

I won't give 5 stars to any of these tilt adjusters until a very basic change is made to make everybody's experience of using them better. The difficulty is that once a screw is opened for adjustment you pretty much have to open all the screws which negates your previous adjustments. This causes the plate to flop around. These devices need a spring or similar assembly to push against the plate to maintain previous adjustments. In the current guise they are awkward to adjust.

The device is well machined and the adjustment screws good quality. I think I will add my own springs moving forward.
