Why Do We Call It The Big Easy? Because our famous Standard Denk Binoviewer included in this Package has a BIG 26mm clear aperture but the price of this super economy package is EASY
to afford. This system is also easy to use because a correcting system
that allows focus in several magnifcations with Refractors, Newtonians
and SCTs is also included. You'll never have a problem bringing focus
to a pair of eyepieces and they will operate at two magnifications in any Refractor or Newtonian and three magnifications in an F/10 SCT including a focal reduction mode. Click on the photo, read all about it.
#R1 Power x Switch Star Diagonal The #R1 2" Power x Switch Star Diagonal
#R1 is made to allow multi-magnification of most binoviewers when used
in Refractors. Just add any Denkmeier Binoviewer (purchased ala carte)
and #R1 will allow the Denk Binoviewer to reach low, mid, and high
magnifications with a single pair of eyepieces. Single eyepieces also
have a multi-magnification function. This diagonal also includes our
special 2" Low Power S Cell that threads directly into the
telescope-side diagonal housing. This cell allows #R1's eyepiece-side
Power x Switch to function when using a binoviewer. The Dovetail
Connector is included and will allow the user to change the focusing
range to suit a particular refractor when using a Denk Binoviewer. As
with all of our Star Diagonals, this unit is available in 97% enhanced
silver or 99% Dielectric Coatings (add $120). Remember to add an ala
carte Denk Binoviewer!
Tak FSQ 106
This R1 Power x Switch Star Diagonal is available in a special version
for The Takahashi FSQ 106 Refractor. This version includes a special
adapter that connects R1 to the Tak FS106 visual back. The Optical
Adapter (included) contains a specifically designed optical element
that allows R1 to reach focus with the Denk Binoviewer at three
magnifcations with a single pair of eyepieces: 1.4X, 2.5X and 3.5X. The
other Non-Optical Adapter (included) connects R1 to the
Tak visual back and contains no optical element. This allows single 2"
and 1.25" eyepieces to be used with the R1 Diagonal at 1X (normal
power) and also allows a barlow effect by way of the multiplying optic
in the Power x Switch. Note that the opposite Power x Switch Arm does
not function when single eyepieces are being used and the non-optical
adapter connects the R1 Power x Switch Diagonal to the Tak visual back.
Select: "R1 for FSQ" ($50 additional compared to #R1 for other
refractors, and specify Dielectric ($120 additional) or Silver enhanced
coatings. Pictorials will be available soon.
Add the Denk II Binoviewer
in the "Binoviewer Ala Carte" section found in the left margin of all
pages on this web site. Remember that for best illumination, our D21
Eyepieces are optimized for all Denk Binoviewer Systems and Diagonals
and are made in USA and assemble and tested as matched eyepiece pairs.
Performance is awesome, we guarantee it!
Note: You may choose
"Short Tube" diagonal or "Regular Tube"
diagonal. Why a Shorty? If you also plan on using an SCT that is
smaller than 10", it
is recommended that you choose the option of "Shorty Tube
Diagonal" and then add a "Shorty SCT Adapter" so that the #R1 Power x
Switch Diagonal may
be used with the SCT in addition to your Refractor. The Shorty Tube was
designed to allow "swing-through clearance" for smaller SCTs so that
the base of the fork mount is not contacted by the star diagonal
All #R1 Diagonals including the FSQ version,
include the typical telescope-side tube that slips into any female 2"
focuser. When the FSQ is used, this tube is removed and instead, the
included FSQ Adapters are used to connect to the TAK106. However, FSQ
owners may have other scopes and the diagonal is designed to convert to
and operate as any 2" diagonal does should the need arise. More... Our Price: $499.00
#R2 Power x Switch Star Diagonal The #R2 Power x Switch Star Diagonal This
is one amazing diagonal. We designed this for refractors that can
handle a little extra weight and it has two 2" format Power x Switch
devices that produce a wonderful range of magnifications with any
single eyepiece or a binoviewer. Our #R2 Power x Switch Star Diagonal
allows a Denkmeier Standard or Premium Denk II Binoviewer as well as
some other binoviewers to work at up to 6 magnifications with only one
pair of eyepieces in most Refractors. Add a Standard or Premium Denk II
Binoviewer purchased ala carte to your #R2 Power x Switch Star diagonal
and typical Refractors will operate at up to 7 magnifications with a
single eyepiece. Includes a silver enhanced 97% reflective 1/10 Wave
mirror Also available with a 99.4 %, 1/10 Wave Dielectric Mirror
