Astro-Physics 2" Visual Back for Meade 10" - 14" SCT
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.

I have a Meade lx3 10" Schmidt cassegrain. Will it fit? I wish to use 2" eyepieces
Meade has used the same 3.27"-16 thread since the 2120 scopes before the LX3. As long as your scope's visual back threads are not worn or damaged, this should fit your scope.
I have a 10 " Meade LX200 EMC classic. Will it fit? Thanks
Hi Mathew, Yes, it will work. The SCT threads for Meade and Celestron have been a standard since the 80s. Thank you, Sean
