FujiFilm XT3 adapter


Mike Shade
 

Have completely changed terrestrial cameras from Nikon to FujiFilm XT3.  Curious if there is a reasonably easy way to attach this camera to my AP filed flattener for use in my 130...I have everything plumbed for Nikon, of course but see nothing for Fuji X-mounts...anyone done similar?

 

Thanks.

Already, in the gathering dusk, a few of the stars are turning on their lights.

Vega, the brightest one, is now dropping towards the west.  Can it be half

a year since I watched her April rising in the east?  Low in the southwest

Mike, I have not done this but it seems to me there should be an adapter to use Nikkor lenses on the Fuji camera. If there is, you can put that on the camera body then it would attach just like your Nikon camera did. Possibly with no change in spacers. Is the Fuji camera mirrorless? If so you probably have the back-focus for the adapter to fit without spacers.

Thanks...I was contemplating this but thought I would check and see if someone else had done what I am proposing and how they did it...I know there can be some spacing concerns with the FF. It is setup properly for the Nikon...Yes it is a mirrorless camera, the Fuji.

Well, you'll need some kind of adapter anyway and it is likely that a commercial adapter that allows Nikkor lenses as well as connecting to the telescope will be a) cheaper and b) have utility beyond astronomy. Seems worth considering since you said this was your daytime camera not a camera bought and modified to only be an astro camera.
