    Comments about Celestron 2 Inch Telescope Diagonal with XLT Coatings for SCT Telescopes:

    The appearance and protection of this 2" diagonal is excellent. I only wish that the fitting collar were machined metal (Anodized Aluminum) to make a more secure attachment to the telescope instead of plastic. Since it is a primary support for a lot of expensive mass (2" lenses) and it does provide critical alignment, a stronger mount is justified. So far I have had no problems with the unit. Maybe a metal collar would cause undue wear of the threads. The metal box it came in is a marvel of engineering.

      Comments about Celestron 2 Inch Telescope Diagonal with XLT Coatings for SCT Telescopes:

      I needed a dedicated 2" diagonal for my 8" SCT. Have used other XLT coated optics so I thought this would be a nice compliment for the collection.

      The diagonal is very well made, but it is very heavy,I think celestron could make the diagonal lighter it they used carbon fiber for the housing. The diagonal is a excellent buy for the price.Thanks gary

          find the recycle can and toss your stock 1.25 - I got my SE with a 2" and for kicks tried the 1.25 -and almost lost a tele-vue eyepiece to the great gig in the sky - that thing can come undone and fall apart and should be banned from astronomy. Forever. OK - I'm done.
