Baader 2" ClickLock M54 Clamp - Fits Sky-Watcher / Celestron / Orion Telescopes with an M54 thread on the focuser - e.g. Sky-Watcher Explorer Newtonians 150mm upwards and 130P-DS.
The Baader Planetarium 2" Click-Lock Eyepiece Clamp brings eyepiece holders into the 21st century. With a simple twist, 2" eyepieces and accessories are instantly locked with such strength that they can literally support an entire telescope without slippage. Simply grip the rubber-knurled outer collar and lightly twist. Easy.
I purchased a click lock as the m54 compression fitting I had wasnít holding my camera with a baader cc mk3 very well , now this may be purely down to the groove on the baader nosepiece as standard thumb screws on the drawtube fitting catch on the edge of the baader groove , having had a few near misses of camera slippage decided on a click lock , though expensive not as expensive as a new camera, I tried it out on the scope (200pds) and iíam impressed itís rock solid, just push the single long knob , great for everyone as no fiddling with little screws in the dark and camera clamped like a limpet , gave it a good shake , can honestly say if you using a baader cc or Hyperion fitting ,use this on your scope , I havenít tried it on a normal smooth eyepiece but would assume will clamp just as well as it uses a compression fitting obviously itís purposely made to hold baader fittings better , now ordered a baader m48 nosepiece for my backup camera should I not want to use the cc , Highly recommend .
Well it took 11days to arrive in Canada, and I was fortunate enough to use, it the same night, it fits my Skywatcher10" Quattro very good and holds the collimation laser straight, but with the p4 skywatcher coma corrector on and my ASI294mc Pro i though it was a little heavy, and could slip with the Baader grip , so I added a velcro strap to camara in case it slipped out, other than that all works well, be careful Image's
Excellent adapter which does exactly what it says on the tin, and very well. This would be a five-star review however... the thickness of the adapter added in to the imaging train of a SW 150PDS and a DSLR (in my case a Canon EOS 200D) meant that I could no longer achieve focus (too far out). I had to purchase longer mounting screws and springs for the primary mirror and move the mirror about 20mm further in before i could achieve focus. I am still very happy with the adapter, though. (A friend with a 250PDS was able to move the mirror on the standard SW screws without needing to change them).
The clicklock fitted easily onto the threads of my SW 250PDS focuser , feels so much more secure holding my equipment and is much easier to lock and release cameras or eyepieces. I had previously replaced the original EP holder with a compression ring type but always struggled to access the tensioning screws especially with filter/camera fitted .
