Good call Ian, but I already have that one. Its the rear adapter I need now, and as Beat Kohler is still off work, I need to find another solution.

As a stop-gap I have been using the Baader SCT-2" adapter off my Baader Herschel wedge.

Alternative SCT adapters may work as well.

Can anyone in the UK buy one of those SM60 front adaptor plates from the boot sale and ship to Australia?? (They won't accept o'seas orders....)

Mark,
Thanks....
Just checked the AstroBoot webpage, and the SM60 front adaptor plate is no longer shown....bumma.

I think they were around 110mm. To fit an ED80, but I could do some machining to ensure fitment....

I Just bought the pst adapter. I don't need it, but someone in the future might.

@ Merlin: This was the only adaptor plate there. This is the text.

Coronado SM90 to 107mm
New item. Ring made by AE to allow Coronado SM90 to be fitted to a female 107mm filter thread. I assume the smaller thread (81.6mm) is for the 90mm Coronado ERF.
