.965"/1.25" Hybrid Diagonal

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm relatively new to these forums. Could someone tell me of a source here in the UK for the purchase of a new Antares Hybrid Diagonal, "other" than the vendor Scopes & Skies.

Thanks

Great,

I have been looking at individual sites and have come up empty.

Thank you John !

No problem - there are not too many Antares stockists in the UK, which is a shame because their range includes some interesting items and their quality is pretty good for the £'s spent :)

I has an interesting adapter with my astral. It was a .9xx to 1.25 with compression ring. And my 1.25 diagonal plugs right into it:)

Hi Gaz,

Thanks for the reply. Currently I don't have a 1.25" diagonal, or a scope that uses one. Both of my older refractors are for .965", hence having the hybrid would take care of two issues with one accessory. Still, your adapter sounds interesting, perhaps I will get a chance to see it and meet you at one of the S.W.G. observing sessions.

Cheers

One is a 76mm Sears model 6339-A and the other is a 60mm Carton.

I posted photos of them in my profile album.

Thanks Gaz, I appreciate the offer. I'll most likely be at the Blaenavon meet on April 28th.

Getting good quality at a fair price is all I ask for.

Thanks again John.

After ordering from Rother, the diagonal arrived the following morning.

A fair price, nicely made, and great service. :)
