Hi folks I have a Celestron 8 inch Edge HD and also now have some 2 inch eyepieces. Can I use any of the visual backs on FLO or is it a certain thread size to look for?

Cheers. David

Hi @David Hardie, as long as it says SCT visual back, you should be ok.

Below are some images of my 're-modded' ETX105 with the Celestron f6.3 focal reducer field flattener and 1.25" visual back (1) and an ETX to SCT adaptor ring (2) for attaching it to the backplate (3)...

...and another image of my ETX105 (4) with an Altair Astro SCT star diagonal attached to the adaptor ring (2).

* you will not need this with your C8 Edge.
