Quote: Hey folks. I just picked up a used Vixen ED103S that came with a cheap 2" diagonal
Quote: I don't think the 2" diagonal is what came with it. I could be wrong, having never seen a new one. However, since I was looking at getting 1.25" eyepieces, I figured I'd need an adaptor or new diagonal anyway. Then I figured I might as well get a decent one.

Quote:Ok, thanks for the look-see. I can appreciate a pretty face, but I probably won't worry about such things until after all the other necessities are bought. Until then, I'll go with this.Thanks! I had no idea there wasn't a bigger difference... figured if it was any kind of glass between you and the image, there would be major quality differences between stock and upgraded.Matt
