Image Correcting Star Diagonals

Guys,

My brain just doesn't work well with my current diagonal giving me a back to front view.

I'm sure I'd find those faint fuzzies quicker and easier with an image corrector.

Can anyone recommend a good budget one sub £50 that is as good if not better than the skywatcher diagonal I got with the scope (mak 127)?

Thanks, Dan

For that price I would get this one, only 1.25" though but the 2" version id over £140

This one is only £40

Hi Dan

Theres lots of budget erecting prisms around but unfortunately the very nature of the beasts have an effect on reducing the light to the eyepiece. Its small but there. They are really better used for daylight terrestrial vieing.

I have done a side by side with a budget mirror star diagonal and one of these and the star diagonal pips it. It wont have much affect on lunar and bright stuff but may just stop you catching sight of that faint fuzzy.
