        The cell adaptor fits my Meade Etx 90 perfect. I have many SCT parts that I can now use on my Etx.

        Comments about Meade ETX Back Cell Adapter to SCT Thread:

        this adapter will allow you to use the Meade SCT camera adapter on Seben's comet or any other Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. No more vignetting due to the adapters size. This is most likely one of the best adapters I have come across. Just screw it onto your telescope and then add the SCT adapter with the appropriate T-2 adapter and camera and you're all set. works great!

          Comments about Meade ETX Back Cell Adapter to SCT Thread:

          So far I have been using this to let me do simple astrophotography using the rear cell on an ETX. Using this I can attach a 1.25" visual back and attach a camera after that. It also easily lets focal reducers meant for SCTs work on the ETX.

          The upside, it does exactly what you expect, as long as you don't expect performance with 2" visual backs.

          The downside, it tends to get stuck in the 1.25" visual back, and you can't use any SCT accessories when the ETX is in Alt/Az mode pointing near Zenith. There just isn't the clearance in the forks.
