Are people using the Baader M64a x .75 Click-Lock directly on the drawtube having any issues with focuser travel with Baader 2" mirror diagonals and/or Baader T2 prisms with TeleVue Panoptics and Naglers? 

 

Or is it better to retain the use of the standard black Takahashi M64a x.75 to M72a x 1 adapter which adds about 5-6mm to the lightpath and use the Baader M72a x 1 Click-Lock (which looks like an M68 x 1 2" Click-Lock with an M72a adapter included in the kit) with these eyepieces? 

 

Any experience or advice  appreciated.

 

Thanks

I am not sure this will help but I have both the standard 2 inch Tak diagonal and 2 inch Baader prism clicklock and they both work very well with all TV eyepieces.

I use may FC-100DL with the standard M64 to M72 adapter, the Baader M72-to-M68-ClickLock and a Baader 2" mirror diagonal and come to focus with all my eyepieces. With the Baader M64-ClickLock directly mounted to the drawtube you wouldn't come to focus unless you would use an additional extension.

 

Clear skies,

Ulrich

Does this help? I have no problem focusing any of my EPs.

By the way, I didn’t realize how hard it is to post a pic on CNs.

Hi there - this post might be helpful.  My TV eyepieces work flawlessly with everything converted to Baader parts.
