The NexStar Locking Ring comes in contact, barely, with the Celestron Focus Motor. I can probably make it work, but is there some other issue with using this Locking Ring on my NexStar Evolution EdgeHD 8in? If the motor housing is touching the Ring, is that a problem? Sorry for the dumb question. Thank you for answering these questions like this, very helpful. Tschüß!

If you are able to turn the ring to fasten the mirror then there should not be a problem

Is there a reason this wouldn't be suitable for use on a 6" SCT?

The focussing knob on the telescope is too close to the SC-thread, so there isn't enough room for the locking ring. So, it doesn't fit mechanically.

So I could screw this straight onto my Celestron CPC1100 and then screw the baader click lock diagonal straight into the ring?

Yes, this is how it works. The ring is used like a lock nut.
