Click lock adapter

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

At the moment on my dob I'm using the standard 1.25 and the 2" adapter's. 

I would like to get a twist lock adapter in a 2" , will I  still need to use the 2" adapter and will I have enough inward and outward travel to focus. 

Any help or links on which one would be appreciated.

I’m not sure so I would query with your supplier but l believe there may be two options. I think that your focuser has a silver draw tube, with a black ring screwed to the top of it into which you place either the 1.25" or 2" adaptors. If you want to leave that black ring in place then I think you want the S57 dovetail version:

However, if you remove that black ring and the silver draw tube has an M54 thread on the inside of the tube then you can use the M54 version:

To use 1.25” eyepieces you would use the 2”-1.25” adaptor in one of the 2" clicklocks:

2”-1.25” clicklock

To determine whether you can focus, measure the length of the parts you will be removing. The clicklocks are about 30 mm and the 2" - 1.25” uses another 9.5mm so you can compare what you are removing to what you are adding to determine how much focuser travel you need.
