Yes, I received the Baader 2" ClickLock Diagonal and the Baader SCT LockRing. AFAIK, this is indeed the optimal setup for 2" eyepieces for the EdgeHD 8" ... especially if you want it to fit on a NexStar SE 6/8 mount!
If you want to set up these accessories on your EdgeHD, read the instructions that Manish of Agena Astro gives at his website. Eddgie cited it above. Here it is:
Manish calls this a "semi-permanent installation." I consider it a permanent installation. To do it, you need to take out six tiny screws that secure the ClickLock adapter and then screw them back on. You also need to screw off temporarily the two mirror-locking bolt heads. Manish doesn't mention that because his instructions involve a standard 8" SCT.
It takes a little time and care to do the entire installation right. I don't want to do it more than once. As far as I'm concerned, that Baader diagonal is permanently attached to the EdgeHD 8". Well, maybe until I sell the scope, if I ever do.
The EdgeHD seems like it's made for 2" wide-field eyepieces. However, I've sold all but one of my 100 degree eyepieces. I just don't like the feel of these eyepieces. They are ergonomically uncomfortable to me and I don't like having to move my head to see the entire field. I only have the Ethos 3.7 now.
But I'm loving this scope for the views it gives me through my Nagler T5 31 and Titan-II 40. A nice flat, coma-free field. Stars sharp from edge to edge. The Double Cluster is excellent. The only aberration I see is some astigmatism from my own eyes if I don't wear my glasses.
As I and others said earlier in the thread, you can make the EdgeHD 8 and NexStar work with other 2" diagonals. But the Baader ClickLock 2" diagonal and the SCTLock gives the most clearance. Now I don't have to worry about the diagonal possibly hitting the mount. Besides, it's a great diagonal. It is the EdgeHD's diagonal now. I'm not taking it off.
