A little news about a little adapter.
      #6207718 - 11/21/13 03:01 PM Attachment (19 downloads)

The 07036 adapter is no longer produced by Meade. My research has led me to believe that there are little to none left in US vendors' inventory.
This adapter allows you to convert the rear cell of the ETX Maksutov telescopes to accept SCT accesories, such as visual backs and focal reducers.
I have been using my ETX 90 as a grab and go scope, and I wanted to put an additional diagonal on the back so I could use 2 eyepieces at a time.
This adapter is essential to my plans.
Luckily.. Scopestuff will soon offer their own version of this adapter. All will be right in ETX land.

..well you must have received the last two. They are anything but readily available. A phone call with Astronomics confirmed my suspicions that the product is out of production. I have placed orders at several vendors only to have them cancelled due to indefinite delays.
P.S.
