Mike or Eddgie, or anyone who cares to have a go at this, my time has come to move up to 2" ep's, advice is needed and appreciated.
Ok here goes:
Purpose of this thread: Shortest lightpath for 2" ep's & quickest way to go from the 2" setup to the binoviewer setup.
Telescope: Edge HD 8"
Mount: Nexstar 6/8 SE
Current Visual Back: 10mm Baader SCT Adapter
Current Diagonal: Zeiss Jena 90° diagonal prism - 2x T2 connection (2456095 #1B) with 35mm free aperture
Current EP Holder: 1.25" Baader Clicklock
Other adapters: Antares 2" to 1.25" adapter with Twist-Lock
Other notes: No plans to ever get a GEM mount, I also have started using a Skyq Link 2 which the geniuses have decided to put right under where the clearance would be needed when visualizing at zenith...so this will rob me at least of an inch, more or less, I can measure that if needed.
A lot of advice was given and was discussed in this thread on Page 1 & 2 but at the time I got sidetracked with a refractor which I sold quickly.
Now I'm wondering if I bought this diagonal: Antares 2" Mirror Diagonal with 2" Twist Lock what else would I need to view with 2" eyepieces with a maximum field stop of 35mm? The diagonal I have has 35mm of free aperture, but is that enough?
What would be the quickest way to switch back to a binoviewer setup?
