Borg 7314 Short Profile Adapter for Quark Use

When I tested my Kenko 60mm f/9 refractor with 0.5x reducer, I was disappointed to learn that I can't reach focus even with the focuser barrel fully traveled in! It was almost close to focus maybe another 10mm further in :( 

So I have no choice but to get a super short profile 36.4mm to 31.7mm (1.25") eyepiece holder which the Borg #7314 adapter can provide me. My original 1.25" adapter length is 39mm compare to the Borg's 8mm length.  Since I need only maybe at most another 10mm inner focus travel, the extra 29mm allowance that the Borg adapter will provide me will surely give me the needed distance.  So now.... It's waiting game for next clear sunny sky ...
