These are great, I have two and can say they really are well made devices.

The 2" version can be made into an entire optical system that is modular. You can put a filter on the nose, add a nose extension, put two filters in the tilt cell (one on each side) and filters on the eyepiece side. I configured it to have two ERFs and two narrowband filters as a single device. Very versatile!

Thanks Apollo!

Here's my blue one with two ERFs and two narrowband filters that is simply inserted into a refractor (up to 150mm tested). Compact and modular.

Hi Apollo.

From what I can gather, the 1.25" Sky Bender has a female SCT thread on one side and a 1.25"OD tube on the other?
Please confirm this if you can.

Thanks.
