Eyepiece Accessories and Filters
Baader Solar Filters provide a professional and secure solution to observe and image the Sun using AstroSolar Safety Film. Many ready-made filters stretch the filter material like a drumhead in order to make it look like a piece of glass – this absolutely destroys the image quality, rendering the film useless for high magnification work.

This metal Sky-Watcher Twist Lock Adaptor is an innovative 2"-1.25" low-profile helical self-centring eyepiece adaptor designed to securely grip your 1.25" accessories with its polypropylene compression ring, centring them in your 2" focuser. Furthermore, unscrewing the knurled locking ring exposes a male T-thread on the lower black barrel, which functions
The Olympus EP-16 is a spare or replacement large rubber eyecup for the Olympus E-M5 Mark II and E-M10 Mark II compact system cameras. As well as offering protection, the EP-16 eyecup adds additional comfort when looking through the viewfinder and helps to block stray light.
The mirrors inside these diagonals have undergone a special high-reflectivity multi-coating process, allowing them to reflect 99% of the precious gathered starlight, providing exceptional brightness and contrast (Standard diagonals typically reflect 90-95% of light).
The Sky-Watcher 1.25 Inch Ultra High Contrast (UHC) Filter is the best all-around dark-sky nebula filter. This filter permits superb views of objects like the Orion, Lagoon, Swan and other extended nebulae. It performs well in smaller aperture instruments owing to its greater light transmission than the O-III, yet still suppresses light pollution well.
The Sky-Watcher 2 Inch Ultra High Contrast (UHC) Filter is the best all-around dark-sky nebula filter. This filter permits superb views of objects like the Orion, Lagoon, Swan and other extended nebulae. It performs well in smaller aperture instruments owing to its greater light transmission than the O-III, yet still suppresses light pollution well. Supplied
The Skywatcher 2 Inch Variable Polarising Filter is a high quality anodised aluminium, optical glass variable polarising filter designed to reduce the amount of light entering your eyepiece. You can progressively dim the view when observing a bright object, such as the Moon or certain planets, to a level according to your needs, whilst increasing contrast,
Designed for serious Astro-Imagers and optimised for the Evostar-120ED PRO, the Sky-Watcher 0.85x Focal Reducer/Corrector effectively reduces the telescope's focal length by a factor of 0.85x and provides much improved field-edge correction. Use in conjunction with Sky-watcher's M48 Canon or Nikon T-ring adaptors (product codes 20237 & 20238).
The Sky-Watcher Field Flattener is a superb quality, non-focal reducing field flattener optimised for DSLR imaging on refractor telescopes with focal ratios of between f/5.5 to f6.0. Will also provide much improved results on refractors with focal lengths narrowly outside this optimised f/range. Integral T-Ring adaptor thread. High quality CNC machined
A 90 degree Star Diagonal designed to fit 1.25”/31.7mm focusers and eyepieces, designed to give a more comfortable viewing position over extended periods.
Enhance your viewing of the planets and the moon. Even a 3/4 moon can reflect enough light to strain the eyes, so the use of a moon filter helps to reduce the incoming light and will even improve the contrast. The coloured filters are matched to help improve the viewing of a number of the Planets, and even comets.
Optimised for Sky-Watcher superfast f/4 Quattro imaging Newtonians, delivering stunning wide-field views with pinpoint stars to the edge of the flat field, leaving the magnification unaltered.
