1.25" Lightwave Premium 45 Degree Correct Image Diagonal
A premium 45 degree prism based diagonal which lets you use your astronomical telescope as a super high quality terrestrial spotting scope with your favourite astronomical eyepieces. (This is ideal for the Starwave 70ED, Lightwave 60ED Triplet and of course the Lightwave 80ED).
Astronomical telescopes produce an image which is not only upside down, but is reversed left to right. This 45 degree diagonal correctly orientates the image, so you can use your telescope for birding and wildlife viewing during the daytime. What's more, it has a comfortable 45 degree viewing angle just like a spotting scope. Most astronomical telescopes routinely outperform spotting scopes costing up to 3 times the price when using a diagonal like this, and astronomical eyepieces are generally better performers too. This accessory helps you get more value out of your astronomial equipment.
