I just bought a really nice little Blue Swift model 842 Seeker 80mm Mak for $99 & need help on how to set it up for 90 deg right angle celestial viewing. OBJ is pristine. It only comes with a straight view correct image setup ... Any advice will be appreciated ... Thanks , Piaget JW s-l400.jpg  s-l400 (4).jpg  s-l400 (1).jpg  s-l400 (3).jpg  s-l400 (2).jpg

Does the erecting prism thread into the current basic back plate ring?   If so, it may be a 36.4mm Vixen thread, one of the inexpensive 1.25" adapters may fit...
