About the Baader Click-Lock Eyepiece Clamp

The Baader ClickLock Eyepiece Clamp is a precision clamping eyepiece holder that enables you to insert your eyepieces or standard 1.25” accessories anywhere within the Baader Astro T-2 System™, or for upgrading the stock holder supplied with your telescope. The Click-Lock clamp offers a better approach to eyepiece holders. Once you try one, you'll never go back to simple set screw or even captive brass clamp rings again! With a gentle twist of the outer ring, two special non-marring cam rollers come into contact with the eyepiece and firmly lock it into the holder. The 3-point clamp action guarantees none of the eyepiece wobble common in all single screw clamps or lock-ring style holders. The lack of a protruding lock screw also eliminates one of the annoying hassles of standard holders - no more contortions trying to trying to work your nose around an inconveniently positioned screw!

The eyepiece holder is precisely machined to fit with a minimum of slop, resulting in a close, accurate fit that keeps your eyepiece properly centered on the optical axis. The long contact length of the cam rollers also makes this holder compatible with all grooved eyepiece barrels by bridging the groove. On the front (input) side, the eyepiece clamp has an internal T-2 thread to mate it to the other components of the T-2 system. On the output side, Baader has added two additional unique and useful features. The top of the holder is actually an adjustable micro-focusing collar, with 6.5 mm of travel. It allows you to precisely vary and set the overall clamp height to allow fine adjustment of focus or height for matching other accessories. Furthermore, this ring is removable, which exposes an external T-2 thread. By coupling extension tubes, you can use the Click-Lock as an afocal projection system (using eyepieces with outside diameters of 37mm maximum).

The Baader Click-Lock Eyepiece Clamp makes a superior replacement for the stock eyepiece holders supplied with popular telescopes.

The Click-Lock Eyepiece Clamp is also a key component for a number of common Astro T-2 System configurations, such as the Precision Amici Diagonal, and as a parfocal eyepiece holder for CCD focusing with the Alan Gee Mark II Telecompressor.
