There is a lot of copy-cat in the air lately.

Matt, thanks for shaking the tree...

Here is the Astro-Video Systems 2" INFOCUS adapter for the AVS DSO-1 , DSO-S , MK II/III and APU-1 cameras .
This adapter slides the camera forward INTO the 2" focuser drawtube AND holds the camera securely in place ,without any possibility of the camera slipping further in .
This is a unique Astro-Video Systems design that fits only cameras with this body size and type. It does not fit other camera sizes.
The INFOCUS adapter moves the camera toward the focal plane by at least one inch compared with the standard 1.25" camera nosepiece and by at least 30mm when compared with any other 2" adapters.
This amount is enough to bring the camera to focus in any dobsonian without requiring shorter truss tubes . IT is also useful for refractors that couldn't reach focus .

Another unique feature of the 2" INFOCUS adapter is that the camera can use all 1.25" accessories without any change.
The Varioreducer can be used together with the INFOCUS adapter without any change to the reduction factors and without any change to the reducer to camera distance or spacers.

Matt,

Nice product. Thanks for showing us exactly what is going on.

Good point about refractors. With all this discussion about Dobs I think it has been lost that many refractors have in focus issues when using video cameras with focal reducers.
