Can someone that has used one confirm that the 28mm x .75mm thread size is the correct one for the Celestron Binoviewer RAF T2 adapter? I know the thread pitch is .75mm, but I am not positive about the outer diameter for the tread.

Thanks!

If the Celestron has the same nose piece as the WO that that RAF adapter works.

RAF Lists the correct adapter for the WO as 26mm x .75mm, and I have one of these and I know that it does not fit the Celestron.

 

The 26mm x .75 also fits the Burgess and I think the Stellarvue, but clearly the front thread on the inexpensive BVs is all over the place. 

 

I have a suspicion that I will need to get a custom adapter or a threaded step ring.
