Vixen Flip Mirror Diagonal for 2" Focusers


Are you ready for a whole new concept in viewing possibility? The Vixen Flip Mirror Diagonal attaches to your telescope via a 2” threaded barrel that accepts 49mm filters. This diagonal has an enhanced aluminum coating for 96% transmission, and incorporates the use of a flip mirror to change between its standard 90ยบ 1.25” eyepiece port and the multi-purpose, straight through eyepiece/photography port.

The straight-through port on the Vixen Flip Mirror Diagonal not only accepts many photo adapters but also unthreads to reveal a standard 42mm T-Ring thread.
