The advantages in a nutshell
- Mirror star diagonal with Twist-Lock – automatically centres your accessory
- No clamping screws – your accessories extremely tightly gripped but will not be damaged.
- Bright images – 99% reflection mirror coating, so you can see everything that’s there.
- Carbon-fibre look – carbon-fibre side-walls
- 2”/1.25” adapter with centring clamp
- Change accessories with a single twist
It has never been easier! You can now change your accessories in the blink of an eye, and even in darkness, with a certainty that was never possible with mirror star diagonals attached via a clamping screw. Insert your eyepiece into the star diagonal, twist the fluted golden ring – and already the eyepiece sits there, rock solid.
Nothing slips or wobbles here – not even by a millimeter! The big advantage – gentle clamping and precisely centred accessories.
How is it different to other mirror star diagonals?: In a standard mirror star diagonal, a clamping screw is used to fix the accessory in place. But if screwed too tight it can leav an ugly scar on the eyepiece barrel. And who wants that, when they have spent a several hundred euros on their eyepiece or camera? Your accessories will always keep their value when used with this mirror star diagonal.
Dielectric mirror – bright, high-contrast images: The Omegon mirror star diagonal provides you with a particularly bright, high-contrast image. This is achieved using multiple vapour-deposited dielectric layers, which are very tough and therefore durable. The star diagonal’s mirror achieves a reflectance of 99%. Observers prefer as much light as possible, and this mirror offers a much brighter image than a normal mirror with an aluminium coating.
