Scopestuff has SCT thread adapters for Orion Maks

I just ordered an adapter ring from Scopestuff (these just appeared on their website, or at least I just noticed them there) that adapts the odd threads on the rear of the Orion (and similar clones) 127, 150, and 180 Maks to SCT threads. The adapter adds .6" to the rear of the scope. I also ordered one of those GSO low profile SCT 2 speed focusers to upgrade my Orion 150mm Mak. I can't stand the mirror shift when focusing my 150mm Mak. The optics in my Mak are excellent and I'm hoping to make it useful for photography.
