    I waited weeks for this. Seems fine, threads are compatible with everything I've tried it in so far.

    Not sure when I'll get to use it. I figure about a 3mm exit pupil should be good. Has anyone any experience using one of these?

    I took it out Monday the 23rd threaded into a Baader 14mm Morpheus, only to discover it doesn't achieve focus on my ST102 with an APM Amici lol.

    Couldn't find C/2019 Y4 (Atlas) with the zoom either. I did eventually find it the next night (Tuesday) with a 19mm Panoptic though. Transparency wasn't brilliant but a near 4mm exit pupil seemed better with the comet filter.
