OPT 2" SCT Diagonal
This low-cost 2" SCT diagonal is of a decent mechanical and optical quality at a bargain price. The body is made of all metal (aluminum) construction. A star diagonal mirror to be used with standard 2" focusers on any telescope with sufficient focus travel, like most Refractors and Maksutov-Cassegrains. The 2" barrel with 48mm thread conveniently fits most 2" filter brands.
Instead of the 2" barrel, this mirror star diagonal features an SCT thread. You can attach this diagonal directly to Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes and many Maksutov-Cassegrains, as long as there is an SCT thread on the telescope. Of course this mirror star diagonal comes complete with a 1.25" adapter and 2" and 1.25" brass compression rings.

Product QuestionsQuestion by: Wade on Jul 15, 2014 7:15:45 AMThis diagonal will physically attach to the 6 SE, but it cannot be rotated 360 degrees as it will hit the focuser knob in some orientations. You also will need to be careful as heavier 2" eyepieces may cause the altitude clutch to slip if the nose of the scope is not balanced so a small weight or heavier dewshield may be needed.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Jul 15, 2014 10:48:37 AMQuestion by: Jim B on Oct 24, 2014 12:19:21 PMHello Jim.
Unfortunately it cannot and it is not needed since the telescope comes with a diagonal that is built into the telescope itself. The only external diagonal that is available for this telescope is a 45' erect image diagonal that threads into the rear flange of the telescope.Answer by: Roderick (Admin) on Oct 27, 2014 1:12:14 PM
