Attaching a Baader Click lock to a Baader Steel track


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I just received my Baader Steeltrack to replace my stock focuser on my SW ED80. I already own a 2" Baader ClickLock clamp (S58) and it was supposed to be a fit for this focuser.

The problem is that once I remove the stock clamp to replace it, the threads are on the inside like so:

1. I loosened the grub screws

2. I can see the threads on the inside

3. Here is my Clicklock ... no way to connect it to the Focuser

4. I tried separating the stock clamp from the bottom piece thinking that I might need it but, either it is stuck or it's not supposed to be separated :)

Anyone has had this problem ?

Thanks

ok so I see what happened there. 

The ClickLock I own is not in fact the Baader ClickLock 2956258 but the SW Baader ClickLock M56i 2956256...

Unfortunately on many vendors site, the picture shown of the 2956258 look a heck of a lot like the 2956256...

One website showed it upside down as well ... So I could tell from the picture that I had not, in fact, the correct clamp ...

Ho well, live and learn ... I just bought from FLO the correct clamp that had 10£ off due to a customer return ;)
