Product Details

  • Baader's 2" ClickLock Star Diagonal takes another step towards innovation for mirror diagonals. It uses proprietary Baader all-dielectric mirror coatings like its predecessor (2" Maxbright star diagonal), which eliminates the high surface stresses that cause a star diagonal's mirror to warp as much as 1/2 wave. Baader's proprietary coating process maintains the 1/10 wave mirror surface accuracy after the coating is applied!

    Dielectric Coatings

    Baader's unique dielectric coatings deliver an amazingly high 99% photo-visual reflectivity, along with an extremely hard and durable surface. The ultra-hard mirror coatings will last lifetimes without losing reflectivity and may be cleaned with normal care, without the fear of scratches! This precision mirror is also oversized and combines with the large ID nosepiece to pass the largest image cone possible in a 2" format.

    ClickLock

    The all-new 2" ClickLock non-marring eyepiece holder gives you the same simplicity and security as its smaller 1.25" ClickLock cousin. The ClickLock holder clamps 2" eyepieces with extreme security, just by twisting the rubber knurled ring 20 degrees. This ring also features a convenient fingertip lever. This eyepiece holder is so sophisticated, with its 3-point clamping that accurately locks 2" eyepieces without any wobbling or misalignment that can occur with single point clamps.

    Baader's 2" ClickLock Star Diagonal also allows you the ability to remove both the 2" ClickLock holder and 2" nosepiece. This gives you the opportunity to expose 2" x 24tpi threads that permit the integration of the diagonal into additional configurations through the use of the Astro T-2 System components.

    SCT Users: The diagonal body's input 2" threading is compatible with the standard Celestron / Meade 2" rear cell threads, which will let you directly thread it onto your SCT!

    NexStar 8 or 8i users will discover that this diagonal couples close enough to swing through zenith without hitting the RA base!

    Please note: an additional Baader SCT LockRing is required for direct attachment to SCTs.

A well-worthwhile upgrade

I swapped the MeadeLX-600 visual back for the Baader ClickLock adapter at the same time as acquiring their 2" diagonal. (The former needed a few turns of PTFE tape to marry the threads to the OTA but now feels firm.) The diagonal is quite a piece of engineering and a joy to behold. The locking mechanism is genius. I will hold onto this for life. Clever chaps at Baader. Full marks to German design and manufacture.

Just short of excellent

Generally well engineered and beautifully constructed, competently suited to its purpose, but with what seems to me to be a questionable design decision – both the eyepiece chuck and the focuser tube thread into the prism housing and are held in place only by friction. When pressure is applied to the locking lever to unlock the eyepiece, the torque tries to unscrew the chuck from the prism housing. Similarly, when the diagonal with a heavy eyepiece is angled off to the left in the focuser, the torque threatens to unscrew the prism housing from the tube that is held in the focuser. I’m having to consciously take as much care as I did with a conventional thumbscrew diagonal! Can’t this be improved on? I’m busily looking for my bottle of Loctite.

Great build quality

This diagonal is a significant upgrade from my previous SCT only diagonal. Using it with a virtual view visual back allowing free rotation, and the ability to thread a filter on the diagonal.
