T-rings and adapters are usually universal. Or they should be. The off-axis guider with an extender do exist. Have you thought of the possibility of using a larger finder scope on the telescope for guiding? If equipment limitations and budget are a factor, may want to consider doing that instead. Lumicon has a off axis guider on a tele extender. But it might not be what you want. Orion has a few astroPhotography goodies. They have a extender that attach to the t-ring. I believe if you want to use eyepiece projection with a guider, you may want a separate scope that does just that. Goto AstroMart.com and go to forums. There is a section on equipment. Plenty there to help you. Good luck!!
