Hello, recently I got a used TS 90 triplet that came with a 2.5" Moonlite. However, unlike what I expected, the drawtube has a compression ring and is not M63 threaded like I thought it would be. I have confirmed that the compression ring part does not screw off to allow threading. Does anyone know if there is a place to buy a replacement drawtube solution? Thanks!

My compression ring threaded off of my 2.5" CFL. I got an adapter to M48 here (ultra-helpful owner):

I believe some of the older Drawtubes weren't threaded.  Contact Ron (Moonlite) as he's great to deal with

Mine is not threaded either.

I may have to contact Ron as well. waytogo.gif
