Here's the missing instruction guide (with pictures):

1) First, we need to dismantle your Celestron lens. Start by gently taking off the rubber eyepiece (see 1st 2 screenshots)
2) Unscrew the shiny metal tube on the bottom of your lens. It should now look like screenshot 3.
3) Unscrew the plastic black tube from eyepiece. The eyepiece should be facing down as you unscrew it because otherwise the lenses will fall out. It should now look like screenshot 4.
4) Now, get out your T-adapter. Unscrew the shiny metal tube from the top. It should now look like screenshot 5.
5) Take the telescope lens from step #3 and insert into the T-adapter. Make sure the screw from the T-adapter is facing up and the lens is facing down. See screenshot 6.
6) Take the shiny metal tube from step 4. Insert down the T-adapter. Hold it place with the screw from the T-adapter.It should now look like screenshot 7.
7) Flip the T-adapter upside down. Screw in the shiny metal tube from step 2. It should now look like screenshot 8.
8) Take your T-ring and screw into the bottom of the T-adapter. Next to the screw. It should now look like screenshot 9.
9) Take your T-ring + T-adapter and gentle attach it your camera. It should now look like screenshot 10.
10) Now you can attach to your telescope like a normal lens!

A must for astrophotography! Allows me to connect my Canon Rebel T5 to my telescopes.

NOTE: If you get this you will need a t-ring adaptor for your camera model.

Pro-Tip: If you cannot seem to get your images into focus, try using a barlow lens. This allows you to bring images into focus.

You really need to research if this is what you want. It is a good quality piece, but I found , as did others that this only works for prime focus work. You cannot put a eyepiece inside it like you might want to do for many other types of photography. Celestron does not furnish any instructions. If it is what you want, it is a five star piece, if not, zero.

Threads are good. Barrel is good and has that recess that's nice to use. Black inside. Using this with a 2lb DSLR camera caused some collimation issues as there was sag in the light train from the slip in connection when used in an SCT visual back without a right angle adapter. Using the star diagonal I was able to sit comfortably and operate the camera. I'm likely going to opt for the closer fit of a camera back once I get the tethering issues worked out with my Pentax k50 but this will do for now.

The description for this product does not mention that using this T adapater will not allow the camera to focus on many Newtonian reflectors because the adapter basically extends the focuser and will not allow it to travel in far enough to achieve focus with the camera.

There are a few fixes for this. First, check the focuser on the scope to see if the eyepiece holder will unscrew and allow you to screw the camera's adapter directly to it. If not, you can purchase a 2x barlow (Celestron item # 93640) that includes a T-adaptor on it or a zoom lens with threads for a filter that will also allow you to directly attach your camera adapter such as Celestron's 8mm - 24mm item # 93230. Obviously, including a lens in the equation magnifies the image which you may or may not want.

The most expensive and intrusive is to replace the focuser with an aftermarket focuser that will allow this to work.

Other than the fact that it was not directly compatible with my scope, the quality of the T adapter was very good which is typical for Celestron products.

I have to say, I was very nervous when I made the decision to go with the Celestron adapter instead of the Orion one. Why would there be such a huge price difference (close to 40 dollars) if the Celestron fit the Orion telescope. However I figured, hey! give it a try and see if it works, the worst that could happen is that you have to send it back.
I am so incredibly happy with this purchase! Works great, easily fits onto the adapter for my Canon. I cant wait for the skys to clear and I can truly use it!!

I didn't know that this T-mount is a lighter weight version of the 2x barlow in the celestron astromaster kit without the 2x lens. The lens can be removed from the barlow, so now I have 2 T-mounts. This one seems to be aluminum where the kit barlow is steel. Both are threaded at the bottom for filters or the 2x lens and at the top for a camera T-ring.

Fit my telescope perfectly, threads were nice an tight in the mount for the camera body I have. This product is built very solid. While it does add some weight to the end of your telescope while mounted to a camera, it is worth adding the extra counter weight to the front of the telescope to compensate for the added weight of the mount plus adapter and camera body. Very happy with the product.

Fits some Celestron Newtonian reflectors but not others. Attached it to a Canon EOS T3 and then to the Celestron 127EQ and it focuses fine (even though my EQ127 EQ is not that sharp after a year of endless fiddling with collimation). Then connected the same camera & adapter to the very sharp Celestron 114EQ and it would only focus with a Barlow (a Celestron Omni 2x Barlow eyepiece screwd into the T-adapter base, to be precise). Same story with the very sharp Celestron 80AZ, that one needs a Barlow too to achieve prime focus. Disappointing result, since with the Barlow the field of view for me is too narrow, and the luminosity too weak for nebulae and galaxies.

Works great for mounting my camera to various scopes. Getting the scopes to focus with the camera can be a bit tough at times, but that's not an issue with this adapter.
