Hi All,
Upgrading my stock 8SE diagonal with a 1.25 Baader prism. I want to get rid of the stock visual back connector as I don't like the set screw arrangement. Found this suggestion from older posts here, Baader clicklock.

How does this physically attach to the back of the scope? With the original collar or another adapter? Any other solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

If you're look for a 1.25" ClickLock, that's the one. However the mating end is T-2 threads. You'll need a SCT to T-thread adapter; there are several available depending on how much of an extension you want. iirc the stock 8SE 1.25" visual back already has T-threads on the back of it. The other alternative is to get the 2" Baader ClickLock that threads directly to the 8SE, then get a 2"->1.25" adapter - in this case I like the Antares twist-lock variety.

Thanks for the input, Peter. It was also suggetsed over in equipment that a T2-21 adapter would work for me. Have some options now.
