That last closeup image is really funny. Apparently they quite a sense of humour.

Thank you for the replies and photos. I would still like any info or photos of how the attach points work like the mechanical means of attaching the two, the shuttle and the SCA? Thank you.

Just like for the ET/Orbiter aft attachment. The orbiter has a socket and the ET has a ball and there is a bolt that goes through the center of both.
