AP 2" ADASCTLC visual back for Edge 11?
Posted 28 March 2013 - 07:34 PM
Astro-Physics says on their site:
"Note: Celestron Edge HD scopes have a restricted rear cell that may not allow accessories with a long nosepiece to fully seat in this adapter (the AP Maxbright diagonal will not seat). It is recommended to choose the ADASCTLC27 and ADA2003 (or ADA20132) as an alternative when using the Edge HD scopes."
Now, I haven't heard anyone mention that this is a problem for them using this visual back, and have seen it recommended frequently, so is this really the case or is it OK to just get this thing and be done with it?
I'm considering the TeleVue Everbright, AP Maxbright or Williams Optical CF dielectric diagonals for use in this scope. I just need to know if I need to follow AP's advice or if you find folks here on CN have made this work with this visual back.

I simply use the ADASCTLC back for my C9.25 edge with a 2" GSO quartz diagonal and never had an issue with the nosepiece hitting the corrector. Not sure about the C11 edge but I'm sure you can always find a shorter 2" nosepiece anyway for whatever diagonal you decide to purchase.
