      5.0 Great product!

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is a great adapter. I didn't want to buy the Celestron version after reading some reviews. This cost slightly more, but was less expensive than all the rest. It worked flawlessly.

      5.0 Simple and Works

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Used this adapter to mount a camera to a new to me C6. Did a great job. Well finished by any standard (and I have machined telescope parts since the mid 1970s). Short coupled adapter works well for me. Strong and stiff.
