The ZWO M54 adapter is an adapter designed specifically for ASI cooled cameras. Instead of using the 20mm ZWO EFW, you can directly connect the adapter to OAG-L with the addition of 5mm sensor tilt adapter to reach 55mm back focus.
It has a thickness of 15mm. You can also insert an ZWO 2”filter into it.
The adapter supports 2” filters from third-party. Below are the requirements for the filters.
What is in the box?
- M54 adapter (15mm)
- M54M-M48F adapter
- 5-L8 screws * 8
The best solution of 55mm back focus length
Please note the following solutions are premised on that you are using the OAG-L with the cooled camera.

Actually I got my solution by using a T2 Tilter I happened to have, better than using this adaptor. Gives me 61mm back focus and if I want 56mm back focus I can split the tilter. The ASI174MM-Mini should be positioned just nicely in the OAG.
M48 tilt adaptor (5) – OAG-L (17.5) – T2 Tilter (10 or 5) – T2-T2 adaptor (2) – EFWmini (20) – ASI294MM PRO (6.5)

Thanks for sharing.
David – :
Of course the M54M-M48F would need to be a M54M-M42/T/T2F adaptor!
David – :
I am planning to use this adaptor in the following stack which should amount to 66mm which is fine as my OTA has plenty of back focus flexibility:
M48 tilt adaptor – OAG-L – M54 adapter – M54M-M48F – T2-T2 adaptor – EFWmini – ASI294MM PRO
Will the M54/M48/T2 set of adapters work to get the OAG-L and EFWmini connected?
Is my 66mm correct? Is there a better solution ZWO offer?
sara.liu – :
Sorry, we do not have a solution to reach 66 mm back focus yet.
