Vixen 36mm Extension Tubes

 

Here's how I'm using those Vixen 36mm extension tubes with my Sears Model 6336:

Remove the 30mm chrome manual / coarse focus tube;  unscrew the knurled ring from the larger rack & pinion tube; thread in the Vixen tube(s) as needed; then thread in the standard Vixen 36mm to 1.25" accessory adapter.  I'll probably find out tonight that 3 are too much.

 

These tubes should fit all Royal Astro refractors that have the two-tube focusers; they should also work with the Towa Models 305 & 339 -- and their re-branded versions.

Hope it works! I have one sitting around somewhere and could put it to use. Well, it would be added to the rather large list of things to do.....
