Hello Steve,

I don't think adding a 2" diagonal will help with your light pollution problems I'm afraid. Your best bet is to spend the money on a light pollution filter. The only other way to combat light pollution is to put your scope in the car and drive to somewhere a lot darker!

I hope this helps.

Regards,
ninian
