Whenever I have come into large sums of money in my life, I always put half of it aside to spend on fast cars and the pursuit of loose women.
I put aside the other half to spend frivolously.

Quote:Hi Ed,I decided to try Precise Parts T-thread<->Denk binoviewer adapter. I got confirmation email from Precise Parts, will be shipped on Oct 17th.I'll let you know how well it fits after I try it.Tammy
Quote:Ah... Just looked it up. The Televue is listed as 27mm apertures. Will indeed consider these.

Quote: Quote:You don't have to loosen the eyepieces and tighten them back again like the MkV. I was under the impression that the Mark V has microfocusing for each eyepeice.I think the previous Ziess version did not.I am still powerfully attracted to the Mark Vs except for the price. I really like the Baader system and the fact that the light path is kept very short.But the cost is high enough that I would be willing to live with a Denk II and an adapter if I can find one that is very low profile.I also considered a Denk II with a 1.25" nose and just using a Clicklock/T2 on top of the Baader prism. This may not be all that much longer light path than some adapters may require. I am pretty sure that Denk has a 1.25" nose available. Again, would not be as short as the Mark V, but at least I would be able to exploit the very short light path of the Baader T2 Prism.

Quote:I also believe that Denkmeier used to make a 1.25" nose for their BVs, and I would consider using the Denk 1.25" nose on the front of the Bino and putting a 1.25" click-lock on the Baader diagonal.
Quote:Wow.. You must be an easy sell.. LOL.
