Hello all! I’m new to this community but I’m very excited to be here. My grandfather came across an old Celestron telescope, but it only had a camera adapter, not an eyepiece holder or the eyepiece itself. We are looking specifically for an eyepiece holder, as we have not found anything that works with this model. I will post the chats of others that have helped me on Facebook - if anyone has anything for sale or knows where to get an eyepiece holder, please let us know!!
from a FB community:
“I found more info, took a little digging. This is an 80's SP-C6 based on the Vixen R150s. The adapter unscrews and you should be able to get a proper one for it. Maybe ask on Cloudy Nights as someone may have spare parts for this mount.”
“that T-ring adapter unscrews from the focuser plate itself. I don't know if that assembly is actually 2 parts or if it's a specialized adapter for that telescope.”
“Looks like a old celeston comet catcher 140mm those did have Vixen optics and if it is that's a very collectable telescope.”
