I'm about to order the Meade 80mm APO and was wondering how I will connect my filter wheel to the business end.  Right now, I use the filter wheel on my LX90 so it has a female SCT thread connecting it to the telescope.  I would like to change as little as possible from one scope to the other.  Is there an adapter I can get that will give me an SCT male off the back of the 80 mm?  What am I looking for?

Depending on the filter wheel you are using  you will need something to go from the output side of the wheel to the scope.
In mu case I have to use a 2 inch thread to 2 inch barrel.
In most cases you will need a t thread to 2 inch barrel.
