Screws directly to the M54 thread on the Sky-Watcher Newtonian or 72ED refractor focuser drawtube to enable the use of M48-fitting accessories.
Will also fit other focusers with an M54 focuser draw tube.
Easy to fit: Simply unscrew the existing eyepiece/accessory holder then screw this one on.

I prefer to have my imaging train connected via threads, rather than the two set screws in the draw tube. Having just acquired a new ZWO camera, I was keen to get a wide-field imaging set up, and this adapter is perfect! Simply unscrew the existing focus adapter on the scope and replace with this one, and is gives a great M48 connection to the rest of the imaging train.
It's well made, the threads were perfect and everything connected very easily - and as usual, delivery was quick!
Perfect for my Skywatcher 72ED

Fits firmly to my OVL flattener. Does the job.

Great. Works fine.
Much more secure imaging train

Like many others, I was concerned with the standard fixing of my Evostar 72ED which never felt secure I've had my DSLR catch the tripod and thankfully I was there as it was enough for the adapter to lose grip this adapter fully resolves that and any doubts in my mind
Highly recommended a little more expensive but well worth it!

Replaces the standard push fit holder on the focuser tube of the 72ed, allowing you to screw the OVL field flattener directly into the imaging train which is great. However, as with most accessories and adaptors for astrophotography, they know they have you cornered as the £27 price tag is rather ridiculous for this small piece of metal.

So much better than the standard push insert.
Secure, lines up flush and perfect spacing between scope and flattener
Lynx Astro M48 Adapter for Sky-Watcher 72ED

I wanted a method to firmly fix my OVL FF to the SW72ED focus tube rather than thumb screw tighteners that it comes with. so purchased Lynx Astro M48 Adapter, great piece of machining, firm, robust, good quality, 'does what it says on the tin' I can now screw my OVL FF directly to the focus tube, making it all a lot firmer. I'm more than happy with it.

Thanks Flo for that amazing item. Exactly what I needed.
It fits the Ovl field flattener perfectly and screws directly into the 72ed. I'm done with the 2-screws ring provided with the refractor. It was terrible.
