Smoothside Meade 4k 8.8/14 Parfocal?

In swapping them around, I find that the actual field of view is either very similar when looking at the moon, or very different. Without another one to compare to, I can't tell. (I do have a TV 13mm Type 1 I can compare to, should the 14 be similar to its view.)

I had both and the 8.8 requires about 3/8" out travel on the focuser in comparison to the 14mm if I remember correctly.

I've never taken mine apart so I can't help with the "swapped field lens" configuration. It sounds like you have it fixed.
