MEADE 10” (25 cm) SCT

We offer knobs for all versions of the Meade 10” f/10 and f/6.3 Schmidt-Cassegrain secondary, including those with three and six secondary screws. (The extra screws on the six-screw version are for secondary disassembly, not collimation.) Select knobs for your telescope from the list below.

A. Knobs for Meade 10” f/10 with 3-Screw Secondary

Part: M10-3
Fits: Meade 10” (25 cm) f/10 SCT versions with three screws on the secondary housing (2120, LX10, LX50, LX90, LX100, LX200, others)

Knobs: Black plastic, 16 mm (5/8”) diameter
Threads: Black anodized aluminum alloy

Notes:
  1. The factory dust cover will fit normally with Bob's Knobs installed.
  2. Some post-2004 Meade 10” telescopes have six screws on the secondary housing. The 6-screw secondary requires different knobs (Item B below) Do not use knobs for the 3-screw secondary on the 6-screw secondary. The screws on 3-screw knobs are too short.

C. Knobs for Meade 10” f/6.3 Widefield Secondary

Part: M10wf
Fits: Meade 10 inch (25 cm) f/6.3 SCT versions (2120, LX10, LX50, LX100, LX200) which are marked f/6.3 WIDE-FIELD on the corrector ring (Meade 8” f/6.3 is shown in the link)

Knobs: Stainless steel, 12 mm (1/2”) diameter
Threads: Stainless steel

Notes:
  1. Since the factory dust cover contacts the secondary housing when installed, additional clearance is needed to make room for the knobs. We provide a set of spacers that attach to the inside of the dust cover to move it slightly away from the secondary assembly. You can also press the center of the cover from the inside to contour it for additional clearance.
  2. An Allen wrench for removing the factory collimation screws is included with your order.
