Yes, just like that one.

One thing about these reducers, as you increase the distance between the camera's chip and the reducer lens you further reduce the scope's effective focal length - that is you make the focal ratio faster. Down side is you also increase the in-travel of the drawtube. With a refractor instead of using a 2" diagonal, a 1.25" diagonal will afford you a little more in-travel. This is more problematic with a Newt.
