    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.

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

      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.
