Installed on a mak 127. Simply remove mak visual back to reveal thread and screw on adapter. Only 3 stars because it is overpriced. A big thank you to garnett Leary who's YouTube video inspired me to do this mod https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqb3E_0p4FM_ddJhplah6b9WtlQApaOui
Sct adapter stiff does not screw in

Only screws in one turn and stops, does not seem to have the right threading for mak 127 skywatcher
The adapter thread hasn't changed but occasionally there is some variation with the telescope thread.
Please check there isn't paint or debris in the adapter or telescope thread (a toothbrush is good for this). If that doesn't help then please contact us to arrange refund or replacement.

Is it normal for this to only screw down half way this is my second one.
This should not be stiff but sometimes the tolerances can differ between telescopes. If you would like us to send you another one to try please get in touch but it may be the telescope itself that has some malformed threads.

Fits my Skymax 127 perfectly, used with Astro Essentials 2" Visual Back / Eyepiece Holder for SCT Telescopes i now have 2" imaging train for both my eyepieces and camera mounts. Nicely made and finished.
Nice to now have a standard SCT thread !

The perfect solution to the awkward non-standard 45mm thread on early Skymax 127 scopes.
This adapter simply screws over it and can then be left in place permanently.
I can now use my existing (expensive !) SCT focuser and 2" diagonal.
I've given it 5 stars because it's nicely made, works perfectly, and "does exactly what it says on the tin".....

Works like a charm, converted my Celestron SLT127 Maksutov over to SCT thread. Excellent quality, not sure how it can be better really.
