  • The 2" Deluxe Clamping Eyepiece Holder by Baader is a captive spring-bronze clamp ring with dual oversized stainless thumbscrews.

  • The Baader 2" Deluxe Clamping Eyepiece Holder with two thumbscrews makes it easier for users to tighten the clamp screws and ensuring a secure fit.

  • The Baader 2" Deluxe Clamping Eyepiece Holder has an ultra low profile that takes up only 1mm of length.

Baader Planetarium T2-17 2" Deluxe Clamping Eyepiece Holder has a captive spring-bronze clamp ring and dual oversized stainless thumbscrews to protect your eyepiece and accessory barrels from damaging. Completely constraining your wobble is the inclusion of the 2 point screws that result in a 3-point attachment. While most single clamp screws still allow some motion, having the 2 point screws narrows down such motion to a bare minimum. Also with having the 2 point screws, users can easily firmly grasp the thumbscrew and have the advantage of doubling the locking force with having 2 screws. The holder is precisely machined to fit your eyepieces with a minimum slop, resulting in a close accurate fit that keeps your eyepiece properly centered on the optical axis. The holder is provided with an internal 2" thread which is the same plate used on the back of SCT telescopes. This allows the holder to be directly threaded onto SCT's and in turn offering the widest views achievable.

The T2-17 2" Eyepiece clamp is a key component for a number of common Astro T-2 System configurations. These include Multi-Purpose Coma Corrector and Precision Amici Diagonal. Using the T2-28a Expanding Ring to convert 2" threading of the 2" Clicklock holder or T2-17 holder into internal T-2 threads allows use with Baader Astro T-2 components.
