Celestron 2-inch SCT Diagonal XLT
|Upgrading to the Celestron 2-inch XLT Schmidt-Cassegrain Diagonal allows you to take advantage of the wider field of view provided by 2-inch eyepieces. |
The Celestron 2-inch XLT Schmidt-Cassegrain Diagonal is an upgrade that allows you to take advantage of the wider field of view provided by 2-inch eyepieces. This diagonal threads onto the rear cell of any Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope or their common derivatives, including the Celestron EdgeHD and Meade ACF models. The 1.25-inch prism type star diagonals supplied with most such telescopes are the weak link in the optical chain. Upgrading the diagonal to a two-inch version with dielectric coatings is one of the first upgrades that should be considered by owners of such telescopes.
