Is there someone who know the "RAL color" of the Mark V bino?

Thanks! :waytogo:

This the answer from Baader:

Dear Maurits,

This is a very special Zeiss Color wich can not be purchased in small quantity.
You better go to a local Car painting company or to a building center and let them measure the
color and then let them make a small portion of it.

Best regards,

My Baader arrived chipped... new. I think it's fragile paint. I have since put some grooves in it. Bino's are always right next to focuser clamp screws. I still love my Mark V though : )

Mine Mark V was indeed just arrived and new, with some damage :noway: (something like that I hate it).

With the right color it is so done, and now it "is new" and "looks new"! :D

Hi Mauritis,
Nice job! What paint did you use and where did you get it?

Pedro, it come from a local Car painting company and they measure the color and then they make a small portion of it.

I don't know the color, but after measurement it's the same color as the Mark V.

Thanks Mauritis. I will try to the same, although it is for my scope, not binoviewer. :)
