I just bought a Meade 8" LX90 GPS ACF.  Can I use a Celestron 2" SCT Diagonal on a Meade 8" LX90?  Do the Celestron threads match the threads on a Meade visual back?

Yes, the SCT threads on the visual back should be the same.

Yes. I currently have one on an LXD75 and an LX200 8inch OTA. Should be the same for your LX90 8”

BPoletti, please forgive me for asking something off topic. I want to purchase a 8" LX90 in the next few weeks and I am planning the logistics for travelling. I will need a case. As you already have the LX90, Would you be so kind to tell me the dimensions required for a case for travelling? Should be parked with the tube in uprigth position.
