I came into a Celestron Ultima 2000. However it needs a 'secondary mirror retaining ring'. I have no idea if this object is specific to the U2K or if other Celestron OTA's have this piece as well.
I'd love to 3D print it but I'm terrible at designing threads.
Can anyone drop some knowledge on this piece and where I could get one?
When I park the telescope, the secondary mirror will drop out (although it's stopped by the OTA cover) and this is not optimal.
Picture attached.

Thank you!

EDIT: Found it in box of parts! Can't find option to delete post.
