I have bought the Alpy 600 and I am cannot attach the loadstar X2 to the guide port. Am I missing something?

Many thanks

Nick

ALPY C guider mount

Hi Nick,

Doesn't it just screw onto the male C thread ?  

(This photo in the manual shows a T threaded camera with a C to T adapter)

Hi Robin,

Of course you are dead right, I had a nose piece screwed into the C thread, I think when it was fitted to the filter wheel the nose piece was attached. I went out to my workshop and removed it and it fits perfectly.

Thank you for your advice

Nick
