This clever Orion Precision Centering Adapter precisely centers any 1.25" telescope accessory in a 2" focuser tube. Whereas standard 1.25" adapters use a thumbscrew, which pushes an inserted barrel laterally, i.e., off center,the Precision Centering Adapter employs a helical compression mechanism that precisely centers the telescope accessory as it is tightened in place. This adapter is especially useful with reflector telescopes for critical centering of a collimating device when aligning the telescope optics. It's also ideal for centering eyepieces and astrophotography cameras on the center axis of a telescope's light path. The knurled twist-lock ring is easy to adjust, even while wearing gloves in cold conditions. Made of machined, anodized aluminum. The adapter  barrel is threaded for 2" filters for easy enhancements.
