They have a nominal 108mm (4.25”) internal diameter and will holdoptical tubes with an o. d. of 2.95” to 4.25”.

A 3.75” o.d. tube would be a more reasonable maximum.There are three large hand-tighten adjustment screws with non-marringDelrin tips in each ring. These allow you to collimate the refractorwith the main scope optics when it is used as a finderscope, or to aimthe refractor off-axis to locate an appropriate guide star orphotographic target when it is used as a photoguide or astrograph.
