Brandon eyepieces use a non-standard proprietary filter thread. This Vernonscope adapter screws into the bottom of 1.25" Brandon eyepieces so that filters with the industry standard 1.25" filter thread (M28.5x0.6) from other manufacturers can be attached to Brandon eyepieces.

Observing MarsPros: Cons: Comments:
Use this to adapt Vernonshop 1.25” magenta and salmon color filters which are hard or impossible to find. Both are fantastic when observing and only fit other’s eyepieces. Using this adaptor. Highly recommended.

A Needed Adapter With Brandon Color-FiltersPros: Cons: Comments:
With these Color-Filters, you'll be getting one of these unless you only use Brandon eyepieces. So in for a dime, in for a dollar. Well made, but the edges of this adapter are very highly polished. These will come flying out of your grasp if you give them half a chance. So really do pay attention to what you're doing!

perfect fitPros: Cons: Comments:
with a nice smooth black finish and carefully machined M30x0.8mm thread, it allowed fitting a non-Brandon (and yet non-standard) 1.25" Barlow lens cell to a standard M28.5x0.6mm eyepiece barrel.
excellent communication and swift delivery, as always. :)

Vernonscope / Brandon Filter adapterPros: Cons: Comments:
Brandon eyepieces with their own filter thread need this adapter to use the more standard threaded 1.25 inch filters. Over the decades I have accumulated several of each kind of filters. I also have the adapter that goes the other way and allows Brandon filters to thread into the more standard eyepiece threads. These adapters are well made, nicely finished and work smoothly as intended. They make everything work together nicely.

A Useful Adapter RingPros: Cons: Comments:
This small accessory allows a 1.25-inch filter, specially threaded for the Veronscope/Brandon series of eyepieces, to fit onto most any other 1.25-inch nosepiece. In short, it works well.
At least two useful 1.25-inch filters that are threaded ONLY for the Veronscope/Brandon series of eyepieces are the Wratten #30 (magenta) and #85 (salmon). This adapter ring allows these useful filters to be used in many other observing applications. If fact, if the filter glass is unscrewed from the non-standard housing, and then placed into the adapter ring and secured with the retaining ring from the non-standard housing, then these useful filters can be threaded into a standard filter slide/wheel.
NOTE: I use this adapter ring on the #30 (magenta) filter (sold by Agena here => agenaastro.com/brandon-1-25-filter-30-magenta.html) as an excellent filter for helping to see detail on Mars.

Vernonscope Brandon eyepiece to Japanese filters adapterPros: Cons: Comments:
I have 32 and 24 mm Brandons that I like to use for low power viewing. This adapter allows me to attach UHC filters directly to the eyepiece instead of using my other adapters that require more in-travel and are further from the field stop. The filter threads are smoothly machined and work fine.
