Glint in Mark V with Leica ASPH Zooms
Posted 06 April 2013 - 02:41 PM
I have been using my Leica ASPH Zooms in my Lunt LS100 solar scope and there is a glint that I think is coming from the Mark V.
I am using the 2.6X GPC and I have it installed like the 1.7X because I can’t think of a way to install it with the correct orientation in the Lunt diagonal.
I think the glint is coming from the Mark V because I can switch sides with each Leica and the glint is always on my right side. Then when I turn the bino around (upside down) the glint is then on my left side. No other eyepieces do this, however. I wonder if it is the length of the eyepiece being so tall or the zoom mechanisms inside. Or maybe my bino needs to be collimated??? Other eyepieces seem fine though.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this. I need to keep testing but was wondering if anyone else experienced something like this. I know there aren't too many people who bino the Leicas.
Thanks very much, Kent

perhaps one of those could extend your nosepiece enough?
