Does anyone know whether or not any of the 2" ClickLock eyepiece clamps can be used on a GSO diagonal, replacing the existing eyepiece holder?

Chances are that the threads on your diagonal are standard m48 2” filter threads. You could use the Baader ClickLock eyepiece holder, but it would require a m48 to t2 adapter ring. William Optics makes one that has male m48 threads, so no adapter.

I'm going to need more than chances.

First, see if your eyepiece holder unscrews. If it does, measure the opening, or if you have a 2” filter, see if it screws in.

First, see if your nosepiece unscrews. If it does, measure the opening, or if you have a 2” filter, see if it screws in.

Nosepiece?  No, it's the eyepiece side.

My mistake, meant eyepiece holder, although they’ll both have the same threads.

So a 2" filter is the same threading as the WO model, an M48 ?

Agena Astro has a good article on astronomical threads.

Baader makes 2-inch Clicklocks that fit on a variety of threads, including M48 (CLM48-2), so there is no need to drop down to the much smaller T-2 adapter.

 

The first thing you have to figure out is what threads you have on the GSO diagonal and go from there.

 

Cheers,
