Omegon 1.25" / 2" Twist-lock adapter - firmly and gently holds and centres your eyepieces
You know the situation - you've clamped your precious eyepiece using the locking screw on the focuser. But instead of sitting precisely in place, it is tilted or even worse - the screw marks and damages the barrel. But this doesn't need to happen, there is a solution: the Twist-Lock adapter.
The advantages in a nutshell:
- self-centring 2" to 1.25" adapter with 2" thread
- one twist, and your accessories sit firmly in place
- gentle clamping over a large area
For 1.25 "accessories - self-centring 2" adapter
Put your 1.25" eyepieces or other accessories one: Turn the lock-ring and your eyepiece now sits firmly anchored in place.
Your eyepiece no longer needs its safety groove as the adapter now clamps it over a large area of around 15mm.
1.25" eyepiece with 2" adapter - permanently locked
You can also use the 2 "to 1.25" adapter as a permanent 2" barrel for example.
Suppose you are observing with some 2" eyepieces but also have a favourite 1.25" eyepiece you want to use. Instead of constantly having to fiddle around with adapters, you could simply use this adapter together with the eyepiece and use it with a fixed 2" barrel.
2" filter thread
Use Twist Lock adapter as a high-end reduction ring. It is gentle with the accessories and yet clamps them in place with incredible force.
Save money when buying filters - A 2" filter thread offers the option of using a 2" screwed filter, even when using a 1.25" eyepiece.
