i have a very nice vintage C5+, and i am considering using wo binoviewers without any corrector, with a pair of tv 13mm smoothsides. can anyone confirm if this setup will focus ok? i estimate final operating mag to be arouind 130x with a 1.25 inch diagonal

I have used a Maxbright and a Mark V on a C5 and both worked fine when used with a 1.25" T2 diagonal. A standard 1.25" diagonal adds a bit of back focus requirement, but the C5 should work with it without any problem.

No adapter needed normally but can't binoview w/the 6.3FR.
