Confused?? The ASI462 has 12.5mm back focus. What 'stuff' do I need to connect it to the focuser?
Thanks!

Paul

The ASI462MC is a small planetary imaging camera that should have come with a 1 1/4" nose piece, so all you would need is an 1 1/4" adapter on your telescope.
You could also use a M42 threaded connector if you already have one.
The only special adaptors needed would be if you are trying to use the camera with a focal reducer and or flattener.
In that case you need to find the backspacing specs for the reducer and or flattener and get spacers with that length minus the 12.5mm of the camera.
