TeleVue - Short SCT Adapter

Details

Should only be used with matching DPS-2004 short Everbrite Diagonal. Longer diagonals such as DSC-2001, DPC-2002 will not clamp properly in the ACS-0004 short Schmidt-Cass. Adapter

 

  • Low profile (1.5" long by 2" diameter) adapter allows for use with conventional 2" star diagonals.

  • The Televue Short Schmidt Cassegrain Adapter - ACS-0004 combined with the TeleVue 2" star diagonal, will create 3/4" of clearance between the star diagonal and the telescope drive base.

  • Precision threaded to fit 2" diameter rear cell thread of 5" and larger Celestron and Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain and 7" Meade Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes. 

  • The Televue Short Schmidt Cassegrain Adapter - ACS-0004 incorporates a non-marring compression ring and weighs 6 ounces.

 

Adding accessories to your equipment can sometimes pose unique problems - but Televue has an answer. With certain styles of small aperture and SCT telescopes and some types of 2" diagonals, a real issue can occur when the telescope is slewing through the fork or towards the zenith... Ow! That hurts! No one wants to lose a diagonal or crash an eyepiece into the mount. No worries.... The Televue ACS-0004 Short Schmidt Cassegrain Adapter combined with the TeleVue 2" star diagonal, will create 3/4" of clearance between the star diagonal and the telescope drive base. Clearance issues... solved!

The base of the Televue Short SCT Adapter is precision machine threaded to mate with the 2" diameter rear cell thread of 5" and larger Celestron and Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain and 7" Meade Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes. From there, your conventional 2" star diagonal is inserted and held securely in place with a non-marring, brass compression ring. There's no need to worry about losing the thumbscrew either... It's internally fixed within the adapter!
