This way may be futile since the adapter will stop down the aperture defeating the purpose of the eyeopener wouldn't it?

It's true that the eye opener wouldn't be accomplishing anything in that setup. If you want a true 2" light path throughout it'll be necessary to switch to a JMI or Moonlite focuser designed to attach directly to the large rear cell threads.

Ben,

Here's the JMI NGF-C mounted on my 10". As I have never owned a WO unit I can't really compare but I can tell you the JMI unit is AMAZING. Ultra smooth and the quality is out of this world.

Just another option.
