Bright
Needed a new better diag than what came with the scope. Tried the GSO and it is every bit as bright as my Televues.

GSO Star Diagonal 1.25"
Purchased it when it was on sale for $27. What a bargain, well built and high light reflectivity. Agena Astro ships fast and it's free. Top notch service and free shipping. Agena Astro can't be beat. This star diagonal I purchased for $2...

Well made diagonal
In getting an old Jaegers refractor back into service I needed a diagonal that would do justice to the optics, but that I wouldn't mind having the barrel scuffed by the friction-fit focuser, and this hit a perfect price point for that goal. This...

Diamond in the rough
A very good quality diagonal with two unique and advantageous features - a zero stack height 1.25" eyepiece adapter, and a non-tapered nosepiece without safety grooves. Excellent value!

Great SCT to 2”
This adapter minimizes back focus added to the optical path. I purchased this to attach to Orion’s 2” dielectric diagonal directly to the back of my 150mm MAK. This adapter also allowed me to add a focal reducer without having any focusing issues...

A great diagonal from Baader Planetarium
This is a well made prism diagonal that works well with my home-built 75mm f/5 refractor telescope- with the fast focal ratio there is some noticeable CA but only at higher magnifications - I use the scope for low to medium power views primarily on o...

William Optics Quality
I use this diagonal with my William Optics 98FLT and 132FLT when I take off the cameras and want to do visual observations. Quality is top notch like all William Optics products and Agena Astro shipping was fast. The 2-inch roto-lock is easy to use a...

Well made unit
Super clear compared to stock Celestron 1.25 in. diagonal. Superb construction quality. A little tricky to mount the first time because the mating ring fully threaded onto telescope rear cell does not cinch the unit up tight to the scope. You need to...

GSO 2" dielectric diagonal
Upon opening the box I was impressed by the size and weight of the diagonal compared to 1.25" diagonals. That heft was the primary reason for the purchase, to give greater security and stability when using heavy eyepieces or camera. I also want ...

William Optics 1.25" 90-deg Erecting Prism Diagonal with Helical Focusing # D-EP90-125
5.0
Very useful with good views over mirrors for planets
I bought this on a whim because I read another comment about this diagonal's helical focuser being helpful in keeping the main focuser from extending too far out and throwing off balance. Well, it does that to some degree, and certainly helps me...
Celestron 1.25
Celestron 1.25" Telescope Star Diagonal # 94115-A
3.0
Not so great.
These are now too cheaply made. The thumbwheels stick up above the edge of the tube, so collide with some eyepieces, and the thumbscrews are very loose and the threads may strip out with not much use. This one is now in my "spares" box. Rep...

Two Defective Units
Regrettably, I can't give this diagonal a good review. It is well designed and very solid, as all Williams Optics products are. The eyepiece holder is a high quality compression ring type with a nice large thumb screw, and the helical focuser is...
