T2 mounts and the thread pitch conudrum?

Can anyone advise what pitch is used by Skywatcher on their included M42 camera mount, is it the common 0.75 or the new 1.0?

The reason being is that I have just made a discovery when collimating and setting up my new telescope ready for imaging when the weather and time allows. Therefore, I cannot mount my camera as I bought the M48 T mount and forgot that I needed the M42 T mount on this occasion as I do not have any focal reducers or field flatteners to contend with!

Good job, I found out before I started to set it up outside. 🙂

Well the parts arrived, and it all fits together nicely now as in I can now fit the camera as expected. Also bought a quality dew shield made by Farpoint and darn it puts my own homemade versions to shame. Fully flocked, ABS plastic and a foam cushion where it sits on the scope so no marking and a great grip, and it stays firmly circular. This time around is yet another learning game with a new and modern setup. Now, will the weather and work please cooperate with me!
