Is Baader 2" Amici 45 Erecting Prism suitable for Skymax 127 Pro Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope. Would Prism be connected directly to the telescope OTA and existing barrel removed? Kind Regards

We cannot say for sure but its very likely that you will not reach focus with this item. Furthermore the 2" housing is too big to be mounted in the back of your telescope. Yourl MAK has a very small exit tube, means that you cannot take advantage of the 2" aperture anyway, the field will be vignetted. We recommend to choose an 1,25" Amici prism that does not create these problems on your telescope.

I have a Celeston C5, used for terrestrial viewing. What benefits should I expect by using Baader 2" Amici-Prism 45° instead of the supplied diagonal? And it is possible to use a Click Lock adapter on it? If so, what model?

If you have a regular 90° star diagonal instead of an Amici at the moment, the Amici will deliver correct-orientated images like in a pair of binoculars or with the naked eye.
The free aperture of this Amici is larger than that of many smaller Amici prisms which are included with some telescopes, so there is less vignetting with eyepieces with longer focal lengths, but both the C5 and the Amici have only got a free diameter of 26-27mm, so there will be some vignetting with most 2" eyepieces.
It is not possible to replace the eyepiece clamp with a Clicklock.

Please tell me if Baader 2" Amici 45° Erecting Prism, is suitable for Sky-Watcher Skymax-150 PRO Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope. Thanks. Best regards.

The Sky-Watcher Skymax 150 Pro has a 2" SC thread on the OTA so this Amici prism will fit well.
