    Pleiades - you have a GSO-Diagonal? Cool! I needed a good 1.25" Diagonal, and was figuring I'd get a William Optics RACI Dielectric one - which is what I use in 2" format on all (except my Newtonian) my other scopes. But the 1.25" GSO Diectric 99% Reflectivity model this time caught my eye. And I happily found out it was absolutely excellent!

    It's fit and build was every bit as good as my WO 2" dielectrics' in this smaller format.If I ever have need for another 2" 90° diagonals - it, too, will be a GSO.

    Guan Sheng Optics is putting excellent products out there, and at far less cost than the other Big-Name companies. That's win~win in my view.

    Enjoy!

    GSO has definitely improved over the last 10 years or so.

    Hello....st should be a red for tour telescope...
    EQ mounts are the best but without goto soft they are quite challenging. I spent a lot of time using the EQ5 without goto and I learned a lot. Clear skies.

    Even though I have a Vixen SXP my most used mount is still a manual EQ-5 with tracking motor and a Argo Navis.
    I have been using this for almost 15 years.
