Baader Planetarium has released a number of new telescope accessories for imaging and visual observation. These include:
Baader 2″ ClickLock Eyepiece Clamp M54 x 0.75
The Baader 2″ ClickLock M54 x 0.75 Eyepiece Clamp works with all focusers from Baader Planetarium, Sky-Watcher, TS-Optics, Bresser, Omegon, Explore Scientific and others with M54 x 0.75 male threads.
The compression tension-ring of thick-walled hard bronze keeps its shape even after many years of use and holds expensive accessories securely without causing scratches or pressure points.
A small rotation of 20 degrees with a gentle fingertip pressure to the knurled lever is enough to securely clamp every 2″ accessory. The ratchet function features acoustic and haptic display of the clamp-position. This way you can hear and feel in darkness without looking if the clamp is opened or closed.

As soon as the connection is opened, the external thread ring is also loosened. It offers non-reflecting grooved and is painted dead flat black.
