I'm slightly confused as to what you need, though--the standard visual back is a SCT-to-1.25" adapter. Think you can sketch roughly what you're trying to do, then, take a picture of your sketch and upload? Are you trying to replace your eyepiece with your lens-less DSLR? Are you trying to point your DSLR (with lens)at your eyepiece and take a picture? Are you trying to remove the diagonal, and attach the DSLR (lens-less) to the telescope in the shortest way?

I'm pretty sure that the CN sponsors carry what you need for any of the above cases. Check the CN primary sponsor, Astronomics, then, agenaastro and scopestuff.

Best of luck!

i agree a standard sct outputs 1.25. however the meade variable projection adapter screws onto that visual back.i want that projection adapter to have a 1.25 nose on it so i can use it in a barlow or my reflector tele.i have the portion that hooks to my dslr and that is great but i need the end that plugs into the tele.
