The Baader Heavy Duty T-2 Quick Change System provides a convenient and secure way to rapidly couple and de-couple the wide range of Baader Astro T-2 System components, as well as enabling full 360º rotation. The T-2 Heavy-Duty Changer System serves as a central piece in the large array of possible combinations within the T-2 System. This novel system is comprised of two parts, the #6A T-2 Quick Changer, and the #7 T-2 Change Ring, making it capable of holding heavier loads than the original T2 Quick Change System that used the lighter #6 T2 Quick Changer.
The Baader #6A T2 Quick Changer, with Zeiss pressure block, equals the Zeiss original but is upgraded to the more common M42x0.75 T threads. This piece, along with the #7 Quick Change Ring, works together to enable you to quickly change out assemblies and components, without having to thread or unthread pieces. The dovetail design results in an extremely secure and accurate coupling, maintaining precise and repeatable location and focal distance. This is especially useful in permitting rotation of T-2 system components (i.e. Precision Amici Diagonal, Alan Gee Mark II Telecompressor) or other equipment such as CCD or film cameras. In addition, the T-2 Quick Changer is compatible with the input dovetail ring on the Baader/Zeiss Giant Bino-Viewer, giving you a convenient way to attach to your telescope or other T-2 System components.
The T-2 Quick Changer incorporates machined internal dovetail lips, and a large nickel plated brass knurled thumbscrew for securely clamping to the T-2 Change Ring (#07). The Baader T2 Quick Changer is provided with an internal T-2 thread, which mates with any external threaded T-2 component, or it can be adapted directly to your telescope.
The T-2 Quick Change Ring is a machined stainless steel ring that incorporates an external dovetail lip on one side, and an external T-2 thread on the other. When inserted into the T-2 Quick Changer (#6A), the action of the dovetails and clamp screw precisely center and tightly seat the ring. By slightly loosening the clamp screw, the ring can be rotated 360 degrees while still securely captured in the Quick Changer. The Quick Change Ring is internally threaded and blackened to capture any stray light.
