CELESTRON 9.25” (23.5 cm) SCT

We offer knobs for all versions of the Celestron 9.25” f/10 SCT secondary with either standard or metric collimation screws, including Fastar, non-Fastar, and EdgeHD versions. Select knobs for your telescope from the list below.

Special Note: The Celestron 9.25” SCT uses either standard 6-32 or metric M3 collimation screws. Allen and set-style factory collimation screws have standard threads. For Phillips collimation screws, most silver screws are standard and most black screws are metric. See our hints for more information.

Notes:
  1. Silver factory collimation screws have standard threads. Our hints will help you determine which screws are on your telescope. Make sure the knob threads match the factory screw threads before installing the knobs.
  2. The factory dust cover will fit normally with Bob’s Knobs installed.
  3. Knobs include a set of long spacers so they clear the secondary housing lip.

B. Knobs for C9.25 f/10 Secondary (non-Fastar) with Metric Collimation Screw Threads

Part: C9.25metBO (black oxide steel); C9.25metSS (stainless steel)
Fits: Celestron 9.25” (23.5 cm) f/10 SCT versions with metric screw threads (CPC 925). Not for C9.25 with “Trifid” Faster or EdgeHD optics (see Item C below).

Knobs: Black oxide steel (black) or stainless steel (silver), 12 mm (1/2”) diameter
Threads: Black oxide or stainless steel

Notes:
  1. Black Phillips factory collimation screws usually have metric threads, but some black Phillips screws have standard threads. Our hints will help you determine which screws are on your telescope. Make sure the knob threads match the factory screw threads before installing the knobs.
  2. Black oxide steel (shown in photo) is for dry environments. Lightly oil the knobs periodically as an anti-corrosion measure. Stainless steel provides better corrosion protection in coastal or high humidity areas, or in places where dew or other condensation is common.
  3. These knobs sit inside the tall lip around the perimeter of the secondary, so they may be hard to grasp with two fingers. Adjustments can be made using a thumb or finger against the inside edge of the knob.
  4. If your telescope has the “Trifid” Fastar rotary cover, these knobs will not fit. Order Item C below.
  5. The factory dust cover will fit normally with Bob's Knobs installed.
  6. If your telescope has a factory-installed plastic cap over the collimation screws, it must be removed and set aside when Bob's Knobs are installed. The cover is cosmetic only and will not affect operation of the scope.

$20.95 (black oxide steel)
$25.95 (stainless steel)

C. Knobs for C9.25 f/10 Secondary with Metric Collimation Screw Threads and “Trifid” Fastar Housing

Part: C9.25fst
Fits: Celestron 9.25” (23.5 cm) f/10 SCT versions with "Trifid" Fastar secondary housing

Knobs: Black plastic, 15 mm (5/8”) diameter
Threads: Stainless steel

Notes:
  1. These knobs fit the Celestron 9.25” f/10 SCT with a Fastar secondary which has black Phillips factory collimation screws that are recessed into the secondary housing. These versions may or may not have EdgeHD optics.
  2. Collimation screws on these telescopes are small with very fine threads. Knobs must be tightened gently (just enough to hold the secondary in place) to prevent damage to either the knob or secondary assembly.
  3. Knobs include a set of long spacers so they sit slightly above the rotary cover opening.
  4. The factory dust cover will fit normally with Bob’s Knobs installed.
  5. The rotary secondary cover must remain open when the knobs are installed. The cover is cosmetic only and will not affect operation of the telescope.
