      5.0 Well built

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Well thought out and built adapter. Probably worth more than the price paid. It just plain works as advertised. Perfect for adding to an OAG imaging train to reach proper focus.

      5.0 Baader Eyehold 2

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This item has proven to be a great 1.25" eyepiece holder and fine focuser that threads into T2 diagonals. I especially like the helical focusing feature. It is smooth and can be locked. I found the 3 set screws for centering and tightening the eyepiece to be a bit awkward, but have gotten used to them. The brass compression ring does not hang up eyepiece insertion. So there are no issues; it's all good. It is a piece that is well designed, finished and executed.

      Used the holder with my lodestar. Works well. Just have to recalibrate after rotation.

      5.0 Baader 1.25"/T-2 Eyepiece Holder with Helical Microfocuser

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I bought this eyepiece holder to provide variable spacing and fine focus for a guide camera attached to an off-axis guider. It serves this function very well. I like the internal compression ring feature - it holds objects very steady without marring or scratching surfaces.

      5.0 It does as advertised

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      A great product for OAGs! I required this for the Orion Thin Off Axis Guider to bring a Lodestar X2 into focus. It's easy to install and does it job well.

      Compact,Strong Construction,Accurate,Easy to Use

      5.0 Does the job!

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Strong Construction,Compact

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This item was required to shorten the light train in order to get a Baader Herschel Wedge to come to focus on several refractors. None of my eyepieces or CCD's would come to focus with the provided 2" Click-Stop holder!

      4.0 Functional

      Pros:

      Finely machined

      Cons:

      Somewhat expensive

      Comments:

      I mounted this on a Vixen flip-mirror so I could keep both a DSLR and an eyepiece in focus for white-light solar viewing with an 80 mm f/6 refractor. It needed a T-mount extension tube since the total focus travel is only 10 mm and the focal plane of the eyepiece was further away from the mirror when the camera was in focus. I got a set of these and one was just the right length to put the focal plane in the right place for all the eyepieces I will be using.

      5.0 Another quality Baader product

      Pros:

      Accurate,Strong Construction,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is was used in conjunction with an M43/T-2 adapter to attach a 1.25" ccd to Hyperion eyepieces for Afocal AP. The twist focus works well to adjust the imager.
