I got an extra 0.965" Orion combined camera adapter -- with or without eyepiece projection is what the 'combined' means, in case you didn't know -- and thought I'd offer it to my fellow classic junkies first.

Didn't know if some of you might want to try your hand at doing a little imaging with one of your classic refractors.

If you're interested, PM me. Thanks.

It's a tube approximately 1.5" in diameter and 2.5" long with a 0.965" barrel on one end and T-threads on the other. Inside there is a second adapter that you can optionally install a 0.965" eyepiece in (there's a second setscrew that holds it in place) and you can vary the position of the EP via a slit in the side of the tube with ANOTHER setscrew. So, without an eyepiece -- normal imaging; with an eyepiece - eyepiece projection. One adapter does both.

I can post a couple of photos later if you want...
