The Explore Scientific 2" Dielectric Diagonal is a nice light weight diagonal. The engineers at Explore Scientific were able to achieve weight savings when compared to traditional diagonals replacing some of the base material with carbon fiber material. This simultaneously lightens and strengthens the diagonal. All mirror surfaces have dielectric coatings to enhance reflectivity. Equipped with a 2" to 1.25" adapter this diagonal can accept both 2" and 1.25" eyepieces. Overall this is a great diagonal for the money!

This is a very nice star diagonal! I was able to compare it side by side with the inexpensive Celestron star diagonal that comes with many of their catadioptric telescopes. The image in the Explore Scientific dielectric coated diagonal was noticeably brighter and crisper.
Problem with first item delivered, was replaced quickly. Excellent customer service. Replacement was exactly as expected.
