Introducing the New William Optics 2015 Dura-Bright diagonal with RotoLock # D-DIG2D-ROTO-SCT - a dramatic step forward in the evolution of mirror diagonals! This diagonal combines William Optics' excellent 2" Dura-Bright diagonal with their new 2" RotoLock eyepiece holder.
Thoughtfully designed, exquisitely machined, and artfully presented, the RotoLock eyepiece holder provides a very convenient and robust method to attach eyepieces and accessories to your telescope.

Innovative design ensures that you get a very solid hold and the accessory is perfectly centered every time. No thumbscrews to worry about!
