Still in time for Mars. Alpine Astronomical has received the latest new product from Baader Planetarium - their T-2 Maxbright Diagonal. This robust star diagonal delivers the ultimate image quality, and in a unique new 1.25"+ oversized format (35mm mirror diameter).
Unlike other dielectric coated diagonals, Baader Planetarium's proprietary low scatter Maxbright dielectric coating process results in greater than 99% reflectivity, without warping the mirror! Precision 1/10 wave zero expansion mirror. The unique Baader coating process maintains this flatness, over the entire mirror surface. The ultra hard coatings are durable enough to withstand normal cleanings and will not degrade over a lifetime of use.
German machined precision housing and T-2 modularity makes this diagonal fully adaptable for any scope or need (diagonal sold as component parts, to permit various configurations). Please see our website for information on this diagonal and all our other Baader Planetarium products (including Contrast Booster and UV/IR Filters).
