    Default Orion DeepView 42mm Barrel



    The Orion XT8i I bought used a few weeks ago came with an Orion DeepView 42mm EP that was missing its barrel. Does anyone happen to have a broken copy of this EP that I can salvage the barrel from? Longshot I know...

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind.

    Thanks Gabby, it looks like they might have something that works, I'll send them a note. I have sent notes to several other places too. The standard 2" filter thread is the right size, so this shouldn't be too hard.
