I own a Baader Maxbright binoviewer that I use with my TV85 (Baader T-2 Zeiss diagonal and 1.25X glass bath) - absolutely amazing. I wish to try it my larger Dobsonians. I see that there is a dedicated Baader 2" 1.7X Newtonian
Coma Correcting Glasspath compensator available. Has anyone used it with the Baader Maxbright binoviewer? If so, any comments pro? or con?
Can the Baader Maxbright binoviewer be used with the Denkmeier 2" OCS (with the appropriate adapters of course)? I have a Denk II super system that has a 2" OCS with it.

I get excellent performance with the 1.7X Newtonian Corrector with a MkV, I would imagine it would work well with a Maxbright. Alpine Astro has a photo of the Newtonian Corrector attached to a Maxbright and it actually comes with an adapter included to make it happen.

I would imagine the Maxbright/Denk OCS would work fine in your newt with a fairly long (4"+) extension tube, similar to the length of the Denk II super system newt config. Good luck!
