Helical focuser

G'day everyone, it's been a long time since I've posted on IIS, and as usual when I need help or advice this seems to be the place to go, so I thank you all in advance of your assistance , can anyone tell me an Australian supplier of a Baader Helical focuser( focusing eyepiece holder 11/4" /T2 thread) which I wish to connect to my Orion thin OAG to enable me to connect my 1 1/4" guide camera? thanks again, clear skies.

Extravision.com are an Aussie distributor for Baader .
Just give them the part no from the Baader website and they will get it in for you. Have purchased gear from them in the past

Hi Neil,
In theory I like to order from Aus distributors, but I was recently quoted $585 for a Baader item from Extravision EXCLUDING delivery from Qld to Melb. I ended up buying the item from Teleskop-Express for $385 INCLUDING delivery from Germany! At around half the price, there's no question who I order from...
