Hi James,

Have you tried to look at retail stores such as Bintel - https://www.bintel.com.au/product/bi...v=6cc98ba2045f. It comes in 3 sizes. They are relatively inexpensive pieces. Fleabay also sells them (usually can get them from China cheaply.
Regards,
Matt

Thanks Matt. Appreciate your advice.

I will have to check it out.

I need it for the WFOV 2' EP I bought from you. I had some amazing views of some NGCs but the EP is siting right out on the focuser.

Hopefully a spacer will make it a bit more secure.

Thanks again Matt.

I see, yes you definitely need to get that eyepiece sitting in the focuser so it does not fall out. Does sound like an extension tube would do that. An extension tube 35 or 50 would probzbly do the job. Depends on how much distance you already have used on your drawtube. I am presuming this is when you wind the focuser out.

Yes Matt. You are correct. Even with the drawtube all the way out I can only just get focused with the EP about to fall out. I have ordered one from eBay as you suggested. $13 delivered. Can't complain about that! 😉👍
