We offer knobs (Item A) for all versions of the Meade 14” f/10 and f/8 Schmidt-Cassegrain secondary with exposed collimation screws. These telescopes have six secondary screws where three outer screws are for secondary disassembly, not collimation. We do not offer knobs for the very early Meade 14” f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with recessed factory collimation screws (Item B).

- The factory dust cover will fit properly with Bob’s Knobs installed.

B. Meade 14” f/10 with 6-Screw Secondary and Recessed Factory Collimation Screws
Early Meade 14” f/10 SCTs have recessed collimation screws, as shown in the photograph. These headless set screws are located near the perimeter of the secondary and are accessed through notches in the cover plate. We do not offer knobs for these scopes because they would be in the light path.
