In Topic: swapping GS180 on subal

23 October 2016 - 05:03 AM

It seems my DP-FE is a type 2 or "early" type 3 which is why the adapter doesn't fit. Subal have proposed a not inexpensive solution which is that we replace the plate behind the dome to a new type 4 plate. Much cheaper than buying a new or secondhand DP. All my ports will then be type 4 with only my DP-100/3 requiring the adapter.


Having already gone off topic, I'll say this about the ND500... the button labels are tiny! Do you know anyone who makes bigger housing label decals?

Yup, but it's gonna be a while before I properly test it out. Meanwhile I need to sort a few things out. A bayonet adapter connects my type-3 DP-100 and type-3 EXR-40 to the type-4 ND500, but oddly it won't fit my type-3 DP-FE which i really don't want to have to replace.


Build quality and ergonomics look good so far. Vacuum pump works and housing seems airtight, so that's a good start!

It turns out it's easy...


The GS180 needs to be unscrewed (using the removal tool or similar), while the current standard eyepiece just gets pushed out, after removing a plastic securing ring.

I've upgraded housings and want to move my GS180 eyepiece to the new housing and move the standard eyepiece from the new housing to the old one.


Problem is, the GS180 has the two small holes in it, allowing for easy unscrewing, but the standard eyepiece in the new housing has no such holes and no obvious way to unscrew it.


Any thoughts?
