Questions about this item:

Michal K  Is there a way to ensure that the camera is on level when mounted to the scope? I ask because I do not see any freely-rotating element anywhere in my planned setup: scope's t-thread - this adapter - 46mm adapter on camera (Panasonic LX3) And if not, how far away from level can it get? Thanks, Michal
JOHN Y  You're absolutely right, there is no lock down ring on the adapter. If you don't have a lock down ring on the adapter on your 'scope side, leveling can be an issue. The first time I used the adapter, I "encouraged" a level, tight fit, and had a devil of a time getting the t-mount off the camera body later. Lesson: don't over-tighten! What I do now is to adjust the combination of the t-adapter and the scope adapter to achieve level which, while not as tight as I might like, achieves the objective satisfactorily (you may have to adjust from time to time to make sure the camera maintains level). A DIY solution is to insert a rubber washer between the scope adapter and the scope body which may give you flexibility to achieve a tighter fit, but as the former solution has worked for me (if not ideal), I haven't tried it. Hope this helps. JAY
