Hi Jan,

Most 2" diagonals come with a 1.25 adapter so you will be able to use your 1.25 eyepieces should you buy one.

Regards. Peter.

Starry Jan, A 2" diagonal will give you a much more stable platform for your 1.25" eyepieces. You just have to make sure that the scope is far enough forward so as the diagonal clears the mounts base when slewing to zenith.Oh and by the way,a belated welcome to CN.

Here is my new 8SE with an Antares 7.5x50 RACI and my old Meade 2" diagonal and 2" 14mm UW.
Sorry about the focus.

Thanks Oliver,
I can see that this would be a great accessory to have, just a shame about the price tag.

Ok this is my complete setup (minus the laser pointer in place of finder). That will be added on the next clear night. I was quite disappointed with the results from the Nexguide. I know I may have balancing issues but thats all for another thread.. Here she is....
