Would this make a suitable viewing diagonal?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm (still) in the process of getting together my first few eyepieces, a barlow and diagonal to go with my new refractor. I had considered either a WO Carbon Fibre or Revelation Quartz 2" diagonal but then came accross the Meade #647 2" flip Mirror digaonal. This is obviously used for viewing and photography, which I intend to do a lot of, but wondered whether the quality of the mirror in these was suffient to remove the need for a seperate (viewing only) diagonal altogether?

Note: Obviously I will also need to purchase an SCT to refractor slot adaptor.

Any thoughts or advice...?
