Meade 07085 SCT Thread to 2" Adapter
Would you like to use your conventional slip fit 2" accessories with your Meade LX or ACF 200 telescope? You can when you get the Meade 07085 SCT Thread to 2" Adapter! This two-part adapter tube lets you use conventional barreled 2" prism star diagonals on a Schmidt-Cassegrain’s threaded rear cell.
As always, clearance on drive mounted telescopes can cause some issues. With some smaller aperture telescopes and some 2" diagonals, the length of the Meade 07085 Adapter can cause the diagonal to contact the drive base when moving through the forks, or with an altazimuth mount aimed at the zenith. For this reason, you will need 7.5" of space between the rear cell of your SCT and the tallest point of the telescope drive base to allow for minimal clearance. If this isn't possible, by splitting the Meade 07085 Adapter apart at the threads, the lower portion can be removed and an additional 1.3" of clearance achieved.
