New from Antares - 2" eyepiece holder with female SCT thread (visual back) with twist lock # T2TL
- Features standard 2" SCT female thread (2" dia x 24TPI) for attachment to most standard SCT telescopes
- Features twist lock mechanism with knurled ring and compression band to firmly hold 2" diagonals and other accessories
- Adapter length = 43mm / 1.69" approximately; Maximum diameter = 59.7mm / 2.35"; weight = 2.4oz / 68g
- Made of black painted aluminum
- Made in Canada
Please note: A very small number of older Celestron SCTs had a non-standard SCT thread (with a different thread pitch), so this adapter may not screw on. We cannot advise you of this before purchase, as it will work for the vast majority of telescopes.

Perfect for SCT photographyPros:
Strong Construction,Lightweight,Compact,Easy to UseCons: Comments:
I was having a problem with prime focus photography with my SCT and camera hitting the focus knob. Using this twist lock SCT back gave me enough extension to fit the camera and being a twist lock the lack of set screw allows me to screw it on without hitting the focus knob.

Nice minimalist adapterPros:
Compact,Lightweight,Strong ConstructionCons: Comments:
The three things I like the most is 1) not longer than it needs to be, 2) nice compression ring fitting, and 3) lightweight but strong construction. My only minor criticism is I wish the knurled ring were a little larger so it would be easier to turn.
