Tele Vue 90 Degree Everbrite Diagonal - 2" - Satin Finish - Discontinued -
Discontinued: The 90 Degree Everbrite Diagonal, 2-Inch size, with a Satin Finish by Tele Vue:
When it comes to outright optical quality, no one quite does it like the folks at Tele Vue. The Tele Vue Everbrite star diagonal is now offered in both 1.25-inch and 2-inch models and are CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum. Permanent alignment of the interior optics is absolutely assured and the quality construction means it will fit every 1.25-inch or 2-inch focuser or visual back it meets, and every 1.25-inch or 2-inch eyepiece or threaded filter will equally fit. Adding heavy accessories won't phase the Tele Vue Everbrite Diagonal. It is guaranteed to never come apart and both focuser and eyepiece barrels are anti-reflection threaded internally for higher contrast.
Inside the solid mirror housing is a Pyrex mirror-type star diagonal which sports Everbrite dielectric mirror coatings for 99-percent reflectivity. For those who own reflector telescopes, you know that Everbrite coatings provide superior contrast and resolution. For the refractor and SCT, this means cutting edge images for lunar, planetary and double star work.
Tele Vue Everbrite Diagonals utilized a non-marring soft brass compression ring to hold their precious cargo in place. This means nick-free and scratch-free surfaces for your expensive eyepiece barrels, and no screws to lose in the dark. As always, Tele Vue considers every angle their equipment is used at and a special channel is cut right into the barrel to act as a safety stop. This will keep the diagonal, and your eyepiece from falling should it accidentally loosen from the focuser.
This is the same star diagonal Tele Vue builds for their diffraction limited telescopes, and is exquisitely crafted to fold light exactly 90 degrees. The Tele Vue Everbrite Star Diagonal is simply top of the line and will give you the visual performance your Schmidt-Cassegrain, Maksutov-Cassegrain, or refractor telescope is capable of delivering.
OPT Product Number: TE-DSF-8002
Please note: SCT owners need to purchase the TE-ACS-0004 to adapt this diagonal to their telescope. Also, the TE-ACR-2125, also sold separately, is necessary if the observer wants to use 1.25-inch eyepieces or Barlows with this system. Or, you can use the "Flat Top" 2-inch to 1.25-inch Adapter (product number TE-ACF-2125), for shorter path applications than the TE-ACR-2125.
Customer Note: As of 1/1/12, Tele Vue has extended its warranty on eyepieces, Barlows, Powermates and parracors from 5 years to a LIFETIME warranty! This will be effective on sales on 1/1 moving forward only and is not retroactive in any way. The warranty will still cover optical performance, optical coatings, optical cementing, plus mechanical components and operation of the product. This warranty still applies to the original owner and a dated proof of purchase must accompany any warranty repair claim.
