Hey, oh wise ones. I've been looking to upgrade the stock 1.25" diagonal in my NexStar 8SE SCT, and in my searches I came across a confusing reference for one sold by our patron/host Astronomics:
In the description, it has this disquieting phrase:
..."The lightweight (only 3 ounce) diagonal will work with any 1.25" accessory telescope other then a reflector."... (emphasis mine)
So, two questions for you long-timers out there who have upgraded your diagonals...
1> What do you think of this "premium 1.25" Takahashi TAKSD1 compression ring prism star diagonal" (which looks pretty good, if a bit pricey... but, well, Takahashi)
2> My 8SE is a reflector, so - are they saying that this diagonal will NOT work with my telescope? If not, why not? I need to understand this in order to continue researching upgrade diagonal replacements for my stock Celestron diagonal, which many posts say is entirely adequate but not stellar (pun intended, as always). I didn't realize that this might be an issue, so please enlighten me as to the reason, or as to what they are saying in that one brief mention of a potential issue with my using this seemingly fine product.
Thanks in advance for your advice and assistance here, and good viewing to you all.
