I bought this to upgrade the .965 EPs to 1.25". This diagonal is so much nicer than the generic one that came with the telescope. I use a Celestron Omin 32mm EP in it and get some nice views including all four of Jupiter's moons. The moon is also quite nice with this setup and with a #80A medium blue filter you can get some nice definition.
I bought an Antares .965" to 1.25" Hybrid Mirror Diagonal for my 35 years old Selsi 800/60 refractor telescope. The mirror diagonal is fit perfectly. I am using an Orion Plossl eyepieces to replace from original Selsi eyepieces due of poor image and age. When I am using an Antares mirror diagonal and Orion Plossl eyepieces, the image is sharp and clear. Overall, I am very satisfied with an Antares .965" to 1.25" Hybrid Mirror Diagonal. I recommended to buy this product.
This was per usual a great purchase. Great service. Great price. Thank you.
I bought one of these to use with my tiny classic 50mm F/12 600mm FL Meade refractor. The focus tube is just too tiny to allow any type of adapter to convert the 0.965 visual back to 1.25" so I could use my larger more modern eyepieces with my little refractor. This diagonal was the answer. I popped out the tiny light baffle inside the focuser draw tube, inserted the new Hybrid diagonal and instantly my scope was transformed into a very impressive refractor. Even at very high magnifications, the diagonal kept stars extremely sharp, so sharp that I could see diffraction rings around the brighter stars, signifying excellent optics. I highly recommend diagonal as a upgrade to any classic scope which cannot be easily converted to a 1.25" visual back.
Very simple to purchase items online. Although it was just a small item (an Antares hybrid diagonal), it was well packed and delivered in just 6 day’s to Australia. Very happy with the purchase. Will definitely order again in the future. Thank you to all at OPT!
