  • The scope side has a 3.25" opening, and the accessories side is 2", and will accept diagonals, barlows, 2" eyepieces or a CCD camera.

Astro-Physics 2" Meade Visual Back for Most 10", 12" & 14" Telescopes…

This 2" visual back threads onto the rear cell of Meade 10" to 14" SCTs with 3.25" male threads on the telescope's rear cell. It provides a full 2" unobstructed opening (unlike most visual backs).

Use the AP 2" Meade Large Rear Cell Adapter with 2" accessories that slip in, such as a. 2" diagonal, Barlow, 2" eyepiece or binocular viewer. This visual back features AP's unique brass locking ring design and 3 large thumbscrews to hold your accessories securely and squarely; ideal for critical applications. If you prefer to use just one thumbscrew on occasion (perhaps if you are interchanging accessories frequently), simply remove the extra 2 thumbscrews for that session.

Note: This adapter will not fit Meade 16" & 20" rear cells (they are 4"), and cannot be used when the Meade Microfocuser is attached to the LX200GPS.

High Quality, great price
I picked up one of these for my 10". The fit and finish is exceptional and though three set screws may seem like overkill, it also makes for great centering and superior grip on your accessories, which tend towards rather expensive! This is a very solid, professional grade piece of kit and I highly recommend it. Great price for such nice work, too. Review by MtnGoat / (Posted on 1/19/2015)
