RE: Extensions

Finding a extension in the 2" version will be difficult. If you are using a SLR camera, you`ll need a sturdy hook up for the T-Ring. You will do better with a 1.25" setup. Most equipment is for 1.25" eyepieces. PVC tubes have been used for certain things including eyepiece extension tubes, however getting the eyepiece to center above the secondary and cameras focus point can be a real pain. I believe there are 2 inch versions for this kind of equipment. Orion has 2" Tele-extenders that might help. Call them and ask I guess. Good Luck!!
