I see that this eyepiece seems to be very popular for Binoviewing.

I don't have an eyepiece to check, but the bodies seem pretty large / wide. will these these work with Denk Binos and my 64 IPD without colliding? Also there appear to be a large 90 degree barrel overhang with these. Will I be able to reach the thin collet ring on the denks?

I asked myself the same question a while back, my IPD is 61 and came to the conclusion that 24mm Pans would be a safer bet.......a lot depends on your nose and construction of your face as well, so the only way to know for sure would be to try some.
Some people can use them no problem.
I think the ES 68ยบ 24mm have been OOS for ages now anyway, the 16mm however are a safe bet, they are really small but do have a tighter eye relief.
Good luck with your choice.
