Let us know how this works! If it does, Denkmeier should take a long hard look at making an adapter.

tried again - - very very nice image
I had to fiddle a bit with tunning
but once I got it it was rather smooth
i can see the difference that DS does
it works
tomorrow I will try to take comparison shots

I bought one of those 60mm rigs when they first came out.
Months of tweaking and adjusting never could get it to produce a clean focused image.
I finally got so mad I junked it.

The first few runs of the Spectrum 60s were pretty poor, but they refined the design quite a bit since. They're pretty respectable little scopes now, but I wish they were easier to double stack.
