Meade Eyepiece Holder for Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescopes
- Allows attachment of 1.25" accessories to the rear cell of standard Cassegrain style telescopes.
Meade Eyepiece Holder for Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov-Cassegrain TelescopesThe 1.25" eyepiece holder, also known as a "visual back", screws onto the 2" rear cell of Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes. Once the eyepiece holder is in place, astronomical accessories with 1.25" barrels, such as Basic Camera Adapters, Tele-Extenders, etc., slide into the other end, allowing the user to do astrophotography with their film or digital SLR camera and the proper T-ring.
This eyepiece holder used to be included as standard equipment with Meade's 7"-10" Schmidt Cassegrains (LX90, LX10, LX50, classic LX200's, etc.), but is now optional with the latest LX series of telescopes due to the addition of the standard #1209 focuser.

Will this fit the the camera port threads on the Meade EXT 70?
Unfortunately, this will not work with the ETX, as the rear threads are not SCT, they are specific to the ETX line.
