Aquatica long lens support
Posted 27 November 2006 - 11:55 AM
I am trying desperately to find the long lens support (for the 200mm AF micro) used with the OLD Aquatica A4s housing.
The part number is 18787 (I think).
Unfortunately Aquatica do not have any and can't/won't make another for me.
Jean is doing his best to help me out with some info/dimensions etc.
I was hoping someone new of one sitting in a box somewhere, or maybe even just a possible place to start looking. The auction site etc are no luck.
I am on my knees and begging for help.

I have the 18454, sorry wrong one.
But....are you sure that it is 18787?
Helix Photo in Chicago has old Aquatica stuff.
NK18443 Macro Port Extension: Aquatica 3/4/4s/90sx for 200mm/4 AF Micro Nikkor
If this is the correct port extension, then you are in luck. If they are out of stock on this one you can see if they have any that match the threading on the housing. You can always combine a couple of them to make it long enough.
B&H dumped most of their old stuff on Ebay, but may still have some odd ball stuff. It is no longer listed on their website, so you will have to call.

I've used the 200mm without the support since then without any problem.
