The new 2" Clicklock Eyepiece Clamp brings eyepiece holders into the 21st century. Now, with a simple twist, 2" eyepieces and accessories are instantly locked with such strength that they can literally support an entire telescope without slippage.
The Laser Colli incorporates a viewable etched viewing plate which can be seen through the back of the laser collimator. This permits collimation of SCTs and small diameter closed tube Newtonians, instruments that were difficult or impossible to collimate using a conventional single beam laser collimator.
The Fringe Killer brings a type of filtration, never before seen, to the amateur. Rather than simply trimming the shorter wavelengths at a chosen wavelength and slope like all other minus violet filters, the Fringe Killer carefully attenuates a specific region of the spectrum.
