2-inch XLT Diagonal (SCT)
Posted 23 July 2012 - 05:14 PM
I bought a Celestron 2-inch XLT Diagonal, but I am really disappointed that the fit on to the rear cell of the scope is very poor. I have found that the only way to make it fit properly is to fit a plastic spacer peice into the threaded sleeve that goes on to the end cell of the scope.
Has anyone else found this or is the fit usually good and tight?

Down the road a ways it'll be replaced.

2" Adapter with Brass Locking Ring and 3 Large Thumbscrews - for larger SCTs with 3.25" Rear Cell, (ADASCTLC and ADASCTLM).
I'm not sure if the CPC 9.25 has a 3.25" rear cell . . . but there are smaller adaptors that will fit. With this thing I have not had any problems with diagonals loosening, rotating, or otherwise ill-fitting; and I can use my diagonal(s) in all of my scopes.

It would appear that Celestron have made a bit of a lemon. Will try the grease trick and I might fit a slim rubber oring, as I am not to keen on a direct metal to metal fit.
