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.

Product QuestionsQuestion by: dan on Oct 21, 2015 6:48:00 PMUnfortunately, no, because Meade uses 3.27" threads and Celestron uses 3.29" threads, and the 0.02" diameter difference prevents adapters designed for Meade from working on a Celestron scope. What you want is the AP-ADASCTLC27, which is designed for the larger thread on the Celestron C11/C14 scopes.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Oct 22, 2015 12:11:00 PM
