1.25" Diagonal for SCT

Just sold my WO 2" diagonal therefore I am now after the 1.25" version.

It can be any 1.25" diagonal for an SCT. Willing to pay more for a good one but nothing more than $100.

PM me what you have and we can work something out.

It must be able to screw to the back of an SCT!

Thanks,
Stefan.

I've never seen a 1.25" SCT diagonal. The standard SCT visual back is 1.25" and accepts any 1.25" diagonal. Is that what you mean?

I would need a 2" to 1.25" adapter then a 1.25" diagonal.

Stephan,
Sounds like you have a 2" fitting on the rear of the SCT...
There's a SCT thread to 1.25" adaptor - the visual back which has T threads for cameras and is also a 1.25" adaptor.
With the standard visual back you can use any 1.25" diagonal/ eyepiece etc.

Yep! I hope I still have it cause I can't remember! I'm pretty sure I do.

Just need a 1.25" diagonal. Reasons being:
- Weight
- Only have 1.25" accessories
- Not going to 2" any time soon.

Just checked, I don't have the 2" to 1.25" sct adapter for the back. I must have sold it with my original diagonal last year.
