Product Details

New, Improved Version - Now with 2 large thumbscrews for a more secure grip for heavy accessories.

This high-quality adapter connects to the rear cell of many Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes made by Meade, Celestron and others. The standard SCT rear cell thread on telescopes is a 2" diameter x 24 TPI male thread. Using this adapter, you can attach 2" diagonals, photo adapters or other accessories to your SCT telescope. If you already have a standard 2" diagonal for your refractor telescope, you won't need a new SCT-type diagonal for your telescope! However, note that this adapter will not accept an SCT-threaded diagonal.

The practical adapter is made from precision machined aluminum and is black anodized. It includes a brass compression ring that clamps around the inserted eyepiece or accessory. Because the set-screw does not come in direct contact with the eyepiece, the eyepiece barrel will not be scratched or dented. The inside surface of this adapter is black-matted to enhance contrast by reducing stray light reflections.

Total length = 48mm (1.89"), Depth of eyepiece holder inside = 40mm (1.57"); Weight = 3.5 oz., Made in Taiwan.

Please note: A very small number of older Celestron SCTs had a non-standard SCT thread (with a different thread pitch), so this adapter may not screw on. We cannot advise you of this before purchase, as it will work for the vast majority of telescopes.
