What is C mount ?

A C mount is a type of lens mount commonly found on 16 mm movie cameras, closed-circuit television cameras, machine vision cameras and microscope phototubes.

C-mount lenses provide a male thread, which mates with a female thread on the camera. 
The thread is nominally 1.000 inch (25.4 mm) in diameter, with 32 threads per inch, designated as "1-32 UN 2A" in the ANSI B1.1 standard for unified screw threads. 
The flange focal distance is 17.526 millimetres (0.6900 in) for a C mount. 

How to use the sv163 C-mount adapters?

for example, the svbony sv305 camera is designed with 2 adapters, the threads on the sv305 camera body is C-mount female threads, so you could add the SV163 adapter to the SV305 camera directly. then put the camera with adapter into your telescope tube. no matter you have the 1.25 inch, 2 inch telescope or the M42 threads telescope tube, the 3 size sv163 C-mount adapter will help you connecting them well.
