Description

Upgrade your existing star diagonal with this premium Celestron 1.25" Dielectric Star Diagonal with Twist-lock ensures maximum light transmission without loss of optical quality. This star diagonal reflects the telescope’s light path 90° to provide a more comfortable viewing angle. In addition, the glass has 58 layers of dielectric coatings, which provide an over 99% reflective surface, delivering the maximum amount of light to the eyepiece. All the diagonal’s mechanical parts are made of machined black anodised aluminium, except the twist lock rings, which are orange anodised for visibility. The interior of the barrel is glare threaded and painted flat black to prevent glare. With all its features and these high-end finishes, the Celestron Dielectric Star Diagonal, 1.25” with Twist-Lock is one of the highest quality 1.25" star diagonals that Celestron has ever offered.

Standard Star Diagonals vs Dielectric Star Diagonal

The key specifications for a star diagonal are its reflectivity and its optical quality. This diagonal delivers top performance in both categories, with an over 99% reflective mirror and diffraction-limited optical quality. This ensures that virtually all the light collected by the telescope will reach the eyepiece without the diagonal affecting optical performance. Using a lower quality star diagonal can both dim the view and degrade optical quality. You can enjoy better views from your telescope by simply swapping out its diagonal for a premium one, like the Celestron Dielectric Star Diagonal.

Twist-lock Holder

The twist-lock eyepiece holder secures any 1.25” eyepieces while keeping them centered in the diagonal, thus providing best opto-mechanical alignment between the telescope and eyepiece. Unlike traditional thumb screws, the twist-lock cannot scratch or engrave the barrel of your eyepieces. The twist-lock has an integrated 1.25” barrel stop that prevents 1.25” accessories with long barrels from damaging the mirror.
