Hi Trevor, all you need is a T-1.25" adapter. There are plenty around. Try bintel or myastroshop. Any reason you want a 1.25 and not a 2"? 1.25 swill give you very bad vignettint

That's a shame. Why not look into a 2" focuser at the same time

Hmmmm doesn't look like it. You'll also have to take into consideration the additional weight the 450 will put on the back. What are you hoping to image with it?

I think the cheapest and easiest option might be to fit a 2-inch "visual back" to the rear of the scope. Bintel sell for $39 and typically stock these.

https://www.bintelshop.com.au/Images/Stock/7404.jpg
Bintel SCT - 2" adapter

This adapter threads onto the visual back of Celestron or Meade Schmidt Cassegrain telescopes allowing the use of standard 2" accessories. Uses brass clamping ring to hold your equipment securely but gently. No more gouged chrome barrels from overly eager visitors twisting your diagonal to get a better view. Also allows 2" accessories to be used directly behind Celestron and Meade focal reducers.
Length: 45mm

Cheers,
Jeff

I don't know if the nexstar 6se can have the existing visual back taken off Jeff. Isn't it like the ETXs ?? Be good if it could

If you are imaging (thinking deep sky) then does your mount come with some means of tilting the base to turn it into a pseudo-equatorial mount? If not then you will be limited to around 30secondish for your subs due to field rotation in Alt Az mode
