    One side is fixed with screws you said, but the screws don’t work for the asi294mc pro, so i use the thread. Both sides have threads…. the telescope side also has threads where i connect the spacers and comacorrector. So how do i fix that side with screws if you don’t own an OAG? Since the adapter rings turn freely in the thread on the telescope side?

      Sorry about that.
      Yes there is thread on both side. You will need a adapter that converts M54 to M42.
      Also you can choose 36mm filter for ASI294MC Pro.

    On the camera side the camera stops when it hits the filterwheel, but how about the other side? My adapter rings (on a T2-T2 ring) and spacers can turn freely until inside the filterwheel. How do i stop it from fully inserting in the filterwheel?

    Cheers,
    Michel

    Is there a way to attach the ASI1600mm with its m 42 threads to this wheel with the provided adapters and maintain backfocus? I see there are m42 female adapters

      Sorry no.
      ASI1600 does not need 2″ filters.

    Hello,
    I understand that at one end of the filter wheel we have M54 male and at the other end M54 female.
    Am I correct?
