Much more secure imaging train
Thursday, 23 July 2020  | 

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!

Does the job

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.

Custom adaptor

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
Tuesday, 5 March 2019  | 

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.

Just what I needed !

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.
