1.25 visual back upgrade new
      #6515527 - 05/09/14 10:23 AM

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.

http://agenaastro.com/baader-1-25-click-lock-eyepiece-adapter-visual-back-t-2...

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.
-Dave

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.
