Rafcamera adapter for 8000/9000ED scanner lens

Post by ray_parkhurst »

Raf has built an adapter for the 8000/9000 lens. It has 50mm bore diameter with spring protection ring and goes to M42x1:

Looks like Raf sold out...hopefully he'll make more.

Nikon K tubes are a tight fit, tap some holes in one and secure the optics with those tapped screws, works well.

The adapter is also a good fit for the 120mm Gretag scanner lens, if you have one of those.
