Baader click lock for Explore Scientific 127mm FCD100 Air-Spaced Triplet ED APO Refractor with 2.5" HEX Focuser?

Searched and did not find.  Could not find thread size for focuser. Perhaps changing diagonal to one with Click Lock?

 

Baader site not helpful either, but asked there and will post answer if helpful.

 

Thank you kindly,

alan

I feel ya, I was looking at them for the visual back on an Orion Eon 120mm and have no idea of the thread size required. It's not like we can run down to the store and try them until we find one that fits. Maybe some helpful CNers will have already done these upgrades.
