Beautiful single speed focuser for
Beautiful single speed focuser for my 6" Celestron SCT. Particularly useful for focusing with my astrophotography setup. I haven't used for visual but would fully expect excellent performance here as well.

15mm SCT to T2
Works great. Used it to shorten the optical path of a C8 with binoviewers. Threading is nice and smooth. Baader quality is solid.

Does what it's supposed to do
It's a spacer ring. I'm using it to add backfocus to binoviewers being used with an 8-in dobsonian. Sits between the binoviewers and a 1.6x barlow, and the combo allows focus. Works as expected and comes in a variety of lengths so that I co...

Works very well
I wound up buying a second on for my C8, they work so well. It would get 5 stars from me if it had 2 retaining screws instead of just one to hold the accessories.

It works well. I took one star off just because the metal plate with the holes was bent. Didnt affect the performance but it needs to noted somehow.

My review of this adapter
I bought this for use with an older Celestron C90. The .965 side is a little loose requiring you to make sure its flush before tightening the set screw. Otherwise works fine. Been cloudy ever since getting it (of course).

Valuable observer accessory
Besides keeping direct sun off one's head and neck, the clip-on secures it to a shirt so the hat will not blow off in a breeze. The best is the zippered pocket in the neck drape! One can place a cold wet towel or ice wrapped in a towel for comfo...

Excellent quality
The filter works great on a CPC800. The radially adjustable studs and Velcro straps insure a snug, secure fit. The detail seen us FAR superior to float glass or polymer filters!

Strong rings, odd 15mm spacing
There are three screw positions, spaced 15mm apart. Apparently, this was an old spacing for losmandy rails/bars, but you cannot really find any plates with that spacing anymore. So, you are pretty much limited to the central screws unless you make a ...

This is a very nice and affordable eyepiece. On account of the weather this winter I have not had the opportunity to use this eyepiece under the stars. However, I have used it in the day and images are bright and sharp with good contrast.
