Zeiss Huygens 40 & 63 threads/adapting

There are some interesting eps on the market that remind me of some odd Takahashi-like "systems" with their proprietary threads and adapters for telescopes. Anyone have any info on these two odd balls threading/adapting...or usable at all, in a non-Zeiss optical system? Wading through APM/Markus Ludes Zeiss inventory is akin to another language but, like the Tak big ortho and erfle, there's definately some interesting designs to play around with.

Thanks for any info...
