Quote:Hi everyone. I'm getting the non HD version of the 9.25 with a CGEM mount. I have a few questions if you would be kind enough to indulge me with you time.1) Would the 2" eyepiece kit from Celestron be compatable with my scope?2) While not new to AP this will be the first time I will be using my camera, a Canon 550d (non mod) with a scope. What adapters will I need. I know of the T-ring, but the other I am not sure.I am very excited and will of course post pictures when I get it. Thank you. :-)

Quote: First off, for the 9.25" Celstron SCT, what you will need for 2" eyepieces is what is known as a "2-inch visual back". It screws on to the rear optical port of the telescope and allows 2" O.D. hardware to be used (2" star diagonals, camera adapters, etc.).
