    Lightbulb looking for a 1.25 eyepiece adapter



    This seemed to be the best place for this post as it is a DIY project.

    I have a Focuser Drawtube that is 77mm long with an Outside Diameter of 32mm it is internally threaded the Inside Diameter as close as I can measure with a Digital Fowler Caliper is 30.50mm.

    The Pitch Diameter of one coupling adapter I have that fits the Drawtube is 30.96mm

    I am wanting to put an adapter on this tube so I can use 1.25 eyepieces, do you know of any such Animal ?

    Thanx Much

    My first guess is to look at the manufacturer of the focuser. They are the ones most likely to have what you're looking for.

    Clears,

    well, that is one of my problems as I can't say who exactly made this 1.25" focuser, Tanzutsu company seems to be no more.

    Thanx for the suggestion, I spent a couple weeks looking for leads to them without success.
