Sonnenbeobachtungs-Workshop mit Schülern, eine Station von sieben=Solarscope
Beginnen wir mit dem Negativen - der deutschen Übersetzung der beiliegenden Anleitung - die ist so schlecht ausgefallen, das könnte sogar Google Translate besser. Zum Glück sind die Abbildungen klar und verständlich und somit schafft man das Zusammenstecken der Kartonteile auch mit Hilfe der Abbildungen alleine recht flott.
Eine bessere Lösung zum Scharfstellen der Sonnenprojektion ist ein Vorschlag für die Zukunft dieses Produkts, die Klemmung mit Hilfe kleiner Rillen auf dem Abbildungsfernrohr fällt zu grob aus, in meinem Fall wäre die beste Schärfe zwischen zweier solcher Rillen gelegen.
Das Abbild der Sonne ist 12cm groß und so entsprechend große Sonnenflecken vorhanden sind, kann man diese auch wunderbar erkennen.
Hello, I'm looking for a taller focus travel. I have a LX200 12' and I'm asking myself if 30mm focus travel will be enough. In fact, I've seen the RT version and I'm asking myself if the RT focuser won't fit onto my LX200.
I have an other question, which adapter do you recommend to be used between my LX and that focuser ?
Please check the dimensions before to avoid a possible collition. The inner Tube of the RT Model has a diameter of 63mm, please see: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/downloads/dl/file/id/28/product/2858/bds_rt_dimensions_technical_drawing.pdf
Usually you mount the SC modell and focus with the original focus knob to a range that you can focus all your accessories furthermore with the Diamond Steeltrack SC. Please hold in mind that Meade sometimes uses sligtly different tolerances for the thread, We had some trouble with it in
the past. Which adapter you need for your telescope depends the thread you have. For the Steel Tracks you can find all dimensions under the Link

I'm traying to search for a flattener, reducer to use with my Meade ACF 12" and give me the best result with an APSC sensor (3,76µ/px). I can see that the Alan Gee Telecompressor has been not developed to support airy disc sizes less that 8 micron.
Then my question is ¿wich is the best reducer to adapt to this combination ACF + APSC (3,76µ/px)?
We are very sorry in this case we cannot give a recommendation because our reducers are designed for SC telescopes. We never tried them with ACF telescopes. Please ask the manufacturer of your telescope which reducer works best.

You could use Baader 1¼" T-2 nosepiece with Safety Kerfs # 2458106 to attach the FlipMirror to any 1.25" eyepiece holder.
But as both the SkyMax and the FlipMirror have got T-2-threads, it would be much sturdier (and often shorter) to simply screw them together.
To change the orientation of the FlipMirror, you can use e.g.
Baader TQC/TCR Heavy duty T-2 Quick Changing System (T-2 part #06A & #07) # 2456322
Baader Complete T-2 Changer System (T-2 parts #06 & #07) # 2456321
You could also use a small T-ring like T-2 Locking ring with lever - for MaxBright® II # 2458271 as counter nut to fix the FliMirror in a conveniant orientation on the thread, but we'd recommend this only if you don't need to change the orientation too often. It also depends on the length of the T-thread on your telescope if there is enough place to safely attach both the rind and the FlipMirror.

I can’t find a telescope side M63 adapter. A 2.5” focuser with this thread spec is pretty standard so I’m surprised it is not there. Is there an S70 to make M63 product somewhere that I could use? I know you have an M63 male to M68 female part but that uses up valuable Backfocus. Thanks.
Sorry, it is correct that we don't have a direct UFC S70 to M63 adapter available and also currently have no plans to add this to our portfolio. If the backfocus gets to long by combination with our M68 to M63, we recommend to contact www.preciseparts.com and ask them if they can make a direct adapter for you. They can contact us if in doubt about the measurements of the S70 dovetail.
