Guys,
I bought a Meade 2080 SCT, but it did not come with a rear cell attachment. The scope is in perfect condition by checking it over.
Looking at it when I got it, it has 2 threaded areas,inner and outer threads, and a plastic plug was placed into it keepout the dust.
So at this moment, I have NO way to moount a star diagnal or other attachment to it. I checked A-mart for a long time to see if anybody was selling a rear cell, and I have looked over Anacortes, and they do not sell such an aattachment. So my question is, where can I find this rear cell for sale ?
Any help will be most appreciated. I suspect that the scope was made back in the Mid-1980's....

Thankyou ,
Bill

What you need is called a "visual back"...one is a common item with any astro-dealer...
