Thanks denis0007dl

I think this is not a disadvantage or advantage. My feeling is that looking at the moon and Jupiter will be milder and less dazzling. This helps me keep my eyes comfortable,and I think there's no difference between deep space astronomical observations.Of course, this is my personal opinion
Maybe it's uncomfortable to look at the ground. I haven't seen it yet.

Hi Dennis, I just purchased one of these. I tried it on my 12 inch light bridge Dobsonian, with a 10x eyepiece and a 2x barlow the image is dim and there does not seem to be a sharp contrast  without the barlow, it will not come to a focus at all.  Is there an easy way to convert to a standard 1.25 eyepiece holder. mine is the microscope size. Is the holder threaded, and if so do they make an adapter to go from 23.2 mm to 1.25 inch. Will changing to a 1.25 increase the amount of light reaching the telescope and contrast, or what will the effect be. Any help will be appreciated. Lou

Hi Lou,

yes its possible, amd I like most T2 custom made plates which allow collimation, and, to add any desirable T2 eyepiece holders and/or any other photo/visual T2 compatibile equipment.

Its complex job, where good idea how to make it best, is most important.

No, you wont get advantage of additional light and contrast, and only advantage will be, you will be able use any 1.25" eyepieces.

Kind regards
Denis

But, you could find there some company who could design and make them....
