I am thinking of getting a Baader Maxbright for my SM II 60. With a 2.6 GWK and a 1.25" nose piece it will hopefully work.
As I got a Cemax 25mm with my scope it might be the easiest solution to get a second one. Has anyone experience with the quality of Cemax eps with respect of getting them matched.

I've got three complete sets of the Cemax eyepieces & Barlows, acquired at vastly different times and places and all of them merge in my binoviewers without any problem at all. Based on that experience, I'd venture to say you'll be fine with a new 25mm Cemax.

Thanks Dave, I give it a go if I can find a second Cemax s/h. New they are to close to the Televue Plossl to compromise.

Can someone from experience advise if I would get the Maxbright bino with a GWK 1.7 in the 1.25" nosepiece into focus or would I need a GWK 2.6 .
