- distance between Raynox and microscope lens = 5,5cm
- distance between Raynox and camera sensor = 20cm (till 17cm)

BTW, SIGMA LSA on Harley looks like follows:

Thanks for pointing me to those Harley clamps. I will order some of those. Does the flat face need some machining where they contact the arca clamp? They look like cast material without machining so they might wobble a little.

regards
Lothar

P.S. for tubes with smooth outer surface you could go for T2 Extension tubes and, convert them with a M42x1 -> M42x0.75 or use a T2-Adapter directly for camera connection.

Hmm, probably it would be better to adapt the Harley to Arca but I haven’t changed anything.
BTW, the diameter of the delivered screws is 7,8mm but I have mounted the Harley to the Arca with the UNC ¼”
