Futher accessories for MaxBright® II Binoviewer

T-2 Locking ring with lever

  • T-2 (M42x0.75) Locking ring with lever for direct attachment of the MaxBright® II onto all Baader T-2 star diagonals, be it prisms or mirrors (e.g. to directly couple the body of the Maxbright II with the Baader Prism Diagonal T-2/90° 32mm (#2456005 , € 110,-)
  • An Bino auxillary-ring for adaptation of MaxBright® II (#2458272 , € 10,-) is additionally required for adaptation of the MaxBright® II The Bino auxillary-ring is placed between the binocular and the T-2 locking ring.
  • If the lever of the locking ring comes to rest in an unfavourable position you can still adjust the position of the lever. The lever is only threaded into the ring at the outer circumference. This lever may be threaded into any of the three M4 threads each spaced 120° apart.

Bino auxillary-ring for adaptation of MaxBright® IIII

  • Maxbright II Bino rotation lock/auxillary-ring – for the shortest possible adaptation of the Maxbright® II Binos directly onto all Baader T-2 star diagonals, be it prisms or mirrors – without any part in between that would cause an increase in optical length.
  • The Maxbright® II Bino has a male M34 thread exposed, after both alternative adapters have been removed from the body of the Maxbright II. This M34 male thread directly threads into the female M34 thread present in every Baader T-2 prism or mirror.
  • TThis direct attachment does not leave room between bino and T-2 star diagonal to take up a Baader glasspath-corrector, but on the other hand - the shorter optical length of the combo may be just short enough to not needing a glasspath-corrector at all - so it is well worth a try (exemption: the ) can be fitted in front of any of the Baader T-2 star diagonals). Still the Bino may not bottom out in the right position when fully threaded in while using the described male/female M34 threads. For this reason a dedicated  is available. This T-locking-ring will be threaded "upward" against the body of the Maxbright II, to prevent the Bino from unintended rotation and most of all to prevent it to fall off. montieren.
  • Der T-2 Locking ring with lever - for MaxBright® II (#2458271 , € 36,-) , dedicated for the Maxbright-II, is additionally required. This locking ring threads straight onto the male thread of any T-2 star diagonal and the above mentioned is loosely put between binocular and locking ring. The small elevation visible at the locking ring must point towards the binocular and the smooth side towards the star diagonal.
  • This auxillary-ring works as a cushion, to prevent scratching the paint at the bottom of the Maxbright II while the T-2 locking-ring is threaded upward against the bino.
