Do you have any extensions for the eyepiece side of this clamp that could be screwed onto the T-2 thread (which is made accessible by removing the focuser ring) and that could also hold an eyepiece for the clicklock clamp? I would like to be able easily alter the optical path to my different eyepieces using this clamp by removing or inserting such an extension.
You have these 1508153 extensions: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/t2-extension-tubes-(7.5--15--40-mm).html They are nice (I have one), but because they are on the telescope side of the clamp, they require a lot of screwing and unscrewing to remove and then reinsert. These extensions will screw onto the revealed T-2 threads on the eyepiece side of the clamp, but they are not suitable for holding an eyepiece. One possible option: is there some kind of adapter that could be added to them and hold an eyepiece for the clicklock clamp?
Would I would prefer, if you have one, would be either (1) a T-2 thread extension similar to the 1508153 extensions but that would be suitable for holding an eyepiece and use the clicklock that is already in this clamp or (2) a T-2 thread adapter for the 1508153 extensions that could hold an eyepiece in position for the clicklock clamp if those extensions were screwed onto the T-2 thread of this clamp.
So, you basically want to use an eyepiece just some mm or cm higher above the clamp than usual?
Then you might try to simply extend the 1,25" nosepiece with Baader 1¼" - 31.8mm nosepiece extension with 1¼" filter thread on both sides (T-2 part #05) # 1905130. This is an 18.5 mm long extension for the nose piece. This way, you can insert the eyepiece into the clamp as usual, but the distance is longer.
If you want a defined distance between eyepiece and clamp, there is also the Stop Ring 1¼" (T-2 part #30) # 1905131
These items are mostly used to bring a small guiding camera on an off axis guider into the perfect distance, but it also works with eyepieces. And you can focus surprisingly good by just sliding an eyepiece up and down.
The ultrashort clamp #2458121 is almost the shortest possible clamp if you still want some material left to keep the eyepiece from tilting, so extending the nosepiece is probably the best solution.

The William Optics RedCat has a thread for mounted 2" filters (M48x0.75 thread, female) when used as a camera lens, so you can of course use any of our 2" mounted filters to screw directly into the light path.

I would like to use this focuser on a Sky-Watcher Equinox 80ED. I realize this question may have been asked before however, I have additional information. The OTA to which the focuser needs to fit ends with an M84x1 male thread. Do you have an appropriate adapter or can one be custom built? I can send detailed photographs if necessary...
The issue you're experiencing with the Baader OMS-Nano – Remote Switch for 10Micron Mounts is due to it being on a different subnet than your router. To resolve this, you need to set your computer's IP address to the .0.xxx network and directly connect the OMS Nano to your computer. After this connection, adjust the IP address of the OMS Nano so it fits into your router's IP network. These steps are outlined in the manual on pages 4-7.

The Morpheus 6,5 works very well with your telescope and gives a 153x magnification. This is good for Moon and Planets. We do not recommend a barlow lens, the magnification will be too high for most nights, even on Planets. If you want a higher magnification, you should maybe think about Morpheus 4,5mm instead which provides an ideal magnification for Planets, 222x, with your telescope
