From Optec Website:

Lepus 0.62X telecompressor lens designed especially for use with the Celestron EdgeHD C8 OTA. A standard SCT 2"x24tpi Celestron thread screws directly on to the rear cell thread of the C800 EdgeHD telescope.

This telecompressor requires an Optec camera-dependent mounting tube for proper backspacing. I am also offering two of these mounting tubes for $50 each, one that should fit directly onto a Canon DSLR and another I calculated to work for my ZWO ASI camera with mini filter wheel and OAG. If you have a similar set-up, that may work for you too, but do the math yourself or check with Optec before buying this adapter. I ended up picking up the Celestron Edge 8HD focal reducer as part of another deal, so I didn't end up using this gear. As such, it is new, and never used.

Optec Lepus EdgeHD telecompressor (19409) - $175 - Still Available

Optec Lepus camera mount adapter for Canon DSLR (19392-47C) - $40 - Still Available

Optec Lepus camera mount adapter (19392-53) - 53mm long - $40 - Still Available 

The telecompressor retailed for $275 plus tax, and the camera adapter tubes were $75, I am selling the telecompressor for $175 shipped and the adapter tubes for $40 apiece. CONUS buyers only, please. I will also accept Zelle. See attached photos, what you see is what you get.
