 OM on a telescope is to use a T-adapter plus a T-mount adapter made by the
 telescope manufacturer -- of which I have several kinds for various
 telescopes. >>

In the pictures I've seen of the OM adapter, it looks just like the one I got
from Orion (I think) years ago. Three pieces, one a T-adapter with OM-mount, a
piece with a T-thread that fits in a 1-1/4" (I presume) eyepiece holder, and a
third piece which holds an eyepiece with a set screw that has T threads at
each end and can be put between the two others. This is based on photos I've
seen only.
