It should now look like screenshot 3
By Michael Gugel
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!

Is it what you want?
By Bebes papa
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.

Nice adapter, for what it is.
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.
