Model: flo_comp_ring_adapter_synta_focuserBrand: FLO
Screws directly to the M56 thread on the Skywatcher 80ED, 100ED & 120ED focuser drawtube.
The brass compression-ring firmly grips any accessory with a 2" nosepiece.
Easy to fit: Simply unscrew the existing eyepiece/accessory holder then screw this one on.
Also suitable for equivalent Celestron and Orion telescopes.
Very good much better and secure than the two grub screws to hold in the 2" barrel on the existing 2" mount
FLO Compression-Ring adapter for Skywatcher Refractors (M56 female thread) Asked FLO the question will this fit a Skywatcher Travel Star 102? FLO did not know well I took a chance and yes it screws on to the focuser drawtube. It hold the 2” star diagonal nice and firm much more secure than the standard two pinch screws and will not markup the nose piece. A touch expensive does the job well.
I really don't understand why Skywatcher don't provide these with their ED refractors as standard, as lets face it most people that buy the ED80, ED100 & ED120 generally image with them so to have your camera & reducer nice & secure is a must. I certainly feel a lot safer in the knowledge knowing my equipment is less likely to fall off. The same applies when using the scopes for observing as some eyepieces can be rather heavy too.The item itself is well made & in my opinion a must have option to have as the 2 thumbscrews on the original just aren't up to the job.I've brought one of these for the ED80 & ED100 I own & hopefully one day I'll get to own an ED120 & when I do I'll be doing the same thing.
Here we have a very nice and affordable low profile M56 to 2" holder. A good option to take advantage of the built in focuser.
