can you tell me the outer diameter of a zeiss micro bayonet male fitting? i have a japanese zeiss copy from the 1950s and i want to see if this adapter will work with it (e.g, i need to know whether the japanese microscope bayonet is a zeiss fit).
I have a Celestron Nexstar 8SE and want to switch to clicklock system instead. Which model fits the end of the telescope? Is there a clicklock model that fits the Celestron star diagonal that came with the telescope with model no. 94115-A? Or do I need to switch to a new star diagonal? If so, which one? I use 1.25 "eyepieces.
What size Filters (Neutral Density, etc) do I buy for my Morpheus and Hyperion Eyepieces? Sorry about asking such a lame question but I chose Morpheus specifically because they (as well as an Hyperion I've ordered) were listed in the 2" Eyepiece category from OPT (I have an Omni XLT 150 w/2" eyepiece). But I need to put my 6.5mm Morpheus into a 2-1.25" adapter, and it's the 1.25" end that attaches to the Filter, correct? So for my 2" Morpheus (and Hyperions) I actually use 1.25" Filters, yeah? Help!
1,25" filters fit directly onto the eyepieces; only the Hyperion Aspheric 31mm and 36mm require 2" filters.
Most adapters from 2" to 1.25" also have a 2" filter thread, so that you can put a 2" filter into that adapter and use all 1.25" eyepieces with 2" filters.
The focal lengths and true field of view of the (not Aspheric) Hyperions and Morpheus eyepieces are short enough that 1.25" filters are sufficient.

With the included adapter A, you can use it with every eyepiece which has got a 1.25" filter thread. Please note that the length of the 1.25" nose pieces is not standardised, so that the actual magnification factor may vary slightly.
You can use every barlow lens with the Hyperion Zoom, no problem.
