I use a WO Dielectric Quartz 2" Diagonal and highly recommend it. Infact any Dielectric Diagonal I would recommend, they are quoted at 99% reflectivity. The only drawback is they are reasonably expensive around £170.00, they do occassionally pop up on Atromart [url=http://www.astromart.com/classifieds/]http://www.astromart.com/classifieds/[/url] where you can pick up a used one for half the price..

Good luck & clear skies..

Worth considering is the Antares 2" diagonal from SnS which, at £45, I've found to be very good value for money. They do more expensive ones as well if you fancy spending a bit more. You can find them at [size="-1"][color="#008000"]www.[b]scope[/b]s[b]n[/b][b]skies[/b].com [color="#ffffcc"][color="#ffffff"]or on e-bay.[/color]
