I bought this diagonal for my FC76-DCU, and it is lightweight and excellent quality, with crystal clear views with a variety of eyepieces. It was supplied without covers (as I had read online), but I leave it permanently on the telescope so do not find it an issue.

This is an excellent 1.25 prism diagonal really clear and light weight but very well constructed. Definitely recommend. Usual excellent service from FLO and fast delivery.

I bought this for use with my Tak Sky-90. Previously I have used a 2 inch mirror diagonal and often the Tak 1.6x extender. Both relatively large and heavy. I wanted to simplify and reduce the weight a bit for grab and go visual observing, which is my main use for this telescope. I can get up to 200x without the extender so a 1.25" diagonal would do most of the time under UK skies. I'm pleased to say the image quality is excellent. Good detail. No colour fringing on the lunar limb/terminator at 200x. Well made too as you might expect from Takahashi.
Excellently engineered Eyepiece Holder

The way the Diagonal holds your eyepieces is excellent,
I've tried a few different designs, Like Baader Click Locks,
I could never feel fully confident they were properly engaged
without feeling the need to overtighten,,,
The Mech used on the Tak, is Excellent; It is silky smooth ,
engages with minimal pressure , and feels super secure.
I'm an engineering enthusiast / Amateur tinkerer , I was very well impressed
by this one particular aspect of the Takahashi 1.25" Multi-Coated Prism Diagonal...
I'm Just hoping they will scale up and release a 2 Inch version soon
