Please Note: The Evostar 72 does not include a 2" to 1.25" adapter for the 2" focuser, and is sold separately. We recommend the Apertura Self-Centering 2" to 1.25" Adapter for times when you want to insert 1.25" accessories straight into the focuser. Otherwise, a 2" diagonal with adapter is a good investment.
