Meade's RCX line of telescopes were originally designed with a movable corrector and secondary. This design included a large plastic cover on the back of the OTA. Our #17824 mount screws on to the aluminum threaded cell and bottoms out against the plastic cowling. This allows the addition of the TCF-S3 3-inch focuser, Pyxis 3-inch, or Perseus 4-port Instrument Selector.

The OPTEC-3600 circular dovetail mount is used for the large TCF-S3 focuser, Pyxis 3" rotator, the IFW-3" or the Perseus 4-port Instrument Selector. These mounts allow easy connections from most any telescope. One side has a telescope-specific thread or dovetail and the other side presents the 3.6-inch diameter Optec dovetail mount.
