Product QuestionsQuestion by: John E. on Dec 16, 2016 6:11:00 PMProbably not without some modification. Explore Scientific uses a different hole pattern than TPO for its finder bases, so you may need to drill an additional hole in the tube and fill the hole(s) you do not need to keep dust out of the tube if the holes do not line up. You may also need to source screws with smaller heads to fit down fully into the slots on the TPO base. These would need to be sourced at a hardware store.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Dec 19, 2016 8:29:00 AMWhat's the center to center screw hole spacing minimum and maximum distance on this? Looking to use it on my 8" SCT.Question by: A C Barton on Dec 13, 2015 7:45:00 PMQuestion by: ron on Jul 22, 2017 9:57:00 AMUnfortunately, no. The hole pattern on this finder base will not work with a Meade or Celestron SCT/ACF/Edge HD as the slots on the base are not far enough apart. You will want to use an OR-7215 instead: https://www.optcorp.com/orion-sct-finder-scope-base-7215.html.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Jul 24, 2017 8:35:00 AM
