Optec's #19405 Lepus-STL is a special version of the Lepus telecompressor featuring a male STL 2.156"x24tpi thread in place of the standard OPTEC-2100 dovetail.  Designed especially for the SBIG STT-8300/FW8G/AO8 camera combination, many users prefer the threaded attachment over the dovetail and setscrew arrangement of the NextGEN and standard Lepus telecompressors.

The Lepus-STL version is compatible with the#19395 and #19397 VLC Variable Length Camera adapters and the optional #19391 STL to T-thread adapter.  Be sure to set the back-focus distance correctly for your camera system.  Back focus diagrams can be found at the bottom of this page.

  • Optec TCF 2-inch focuser line,
  • Optec TCF-3 3-inch focuser line with 3-inch to 2-inch adapter,
  • Optec Pyxis 2" rotator with camera-side 2-inch receiver,
  • Any 2-inch focuser or receiver.
