  1. Hi guys and girls - I have just purchased an SW Equinox 80ed and I need a 2" dielectric diagonal and a 2"-1.25" adaptor for it as well - If you are having a wee clearout drop me a line Andy
  2. OK, I am hoping that for myself and anyone else, the collected SGL can help clarify the signifigant differences which all the tags above cover, & any I leave out. There are many diagonals on the market. Some costing a large amount, some for not much at all. Most look very similar to each other, moreso than eyeypieces even.
  3. FOR SALE: William Optics 2" Dielectric Diagonal This is a used William Optics 2" Dielectric Diagonal that I no longer require as I have moved to a DOB. It is in excellent condition with only a few very small dust spots visible on the mirror surface. It has been well looked after and regularly blown with a rocket air blower after use to keep it in top condition. It comes with the original William Optics 2" to 1.25" adaptor and original William Optics end caps. See https://www.firstlightoptics.com/diagonals/william-optics-2-dielectric-diagonal.html for more information. NOW SOLD
  4. Ok Team, I'm on the hunt for a diagonal, but before I push the 'buy button' I would like to know a couple of things! 1, Is there any point in buying a 2" if all my EP's are 1.25? 2, How important is the quality of the diagonal in the overall scope set up? I guess I may be answering my own question with the quality one when I tell you that I recently bought a Meade HD 60 6-Element EP of a well known second hand site... The quality views through that EP are fantastic (I'm saving for another) However, I was looking through a standard issue diagonal, so will a dielectric improve my pleasure? Thank you...
