Experience the 'Swiss Army Knife' of star diagonals that is the Baader FlipMirror II Star Diagonal. With 3 adjustable, configurable output ports and a high-quality flip mirror, the FlipMirror II becomes the heart of your equipment system. Its multitude of adaptations give the imager and visual astronomer practically limitless ways to couple and operate multiple instruments, cameras, guiders, OAGs, eyepieces, and more!
The Baader FlipMirror II Star Diagonal has a straight-through build (S52, M48, and T-2 on both sides) for full-frame cameras, spectrographs, or other instruments. The T-2 threads are also adjustable to ensure your ability to alter this however you will. The rotatable M48 connection rings can be fixed in the optimum position to rotate any accessory around the optical access and is constructed of hardened, stainless steel on front and rear to be backlash-free with the FlipMirror's housing.
Telescope auxiliary instruments cover a wide range of interests, from a sole eyepiece, via camera use, to high-end spectroscopy. Unfortunately, every telescope just features one exit port. This causes relentless manual exchange of parts in the dark, causing huge time loss, wear on the parts - and "nerves". And whenever you start controlling your telescope remotely - the single port becomes a painful reality. This product is guaranteed to improve your workflow--especially during astrophotography, which is ultimately the main goal of the Baader FlipMirror II.
The BFM II lets you switch between a straight light path for a camera or other measuring instrument and an angled light path for something like an eyepiece. Additionally, a calibration lamp for spectrographs or OAG can be connected at the AUX port on the bottom of this device.
