Quote:Perhaps you could add one of these to it. http://www.televue.com/engine/ProductImagePop.asp?ItemCode=PTT-2002&ItemDesc=Tunable%It's an addon turntable built for the origional Paracorr. Probably by then you will be up to the cost of just buying a Paracorr in the first place. I think this show that you often get what you pay for.Bill
Quote: The two parts of the ATCC are connected by standard 2"/48mm filter threads. The 14mm and 28mm Baadder Hyperion fine tuning rings and a 2" color filter were picked up from OPT. Removing the glass from the filter left me with a 6mm tuning ring.
Quote: Sky Captain: The Baader rings do fit, but the male threads on the rings are a tight fit into the female threads on the ATCC EP holder top. I get about 2 turns before it stops. This does feel safe to use though.
Quote: Would be nice if AT would make some accy's that fit instead of the hit an miss that we have been going through. I still can't tell if its the threads on the CC or the tubes that's the problem.

Quote:I want to use it with my ES 14 100 Degree eyepiece for wide-field views of DSO with my 10" f/4.8 Newt Dob. But I would also like to try it with my binoviewer, ideally so I can have a wide flat coma-free field for observing planets without tracking.Mike
Quote:That does make sense^ ill put jupiter at the edge of my fov and watch it drift through the ep but it only looks good toward the center anyway....
Quote: I am not sure how well coma correctors work with binoviewers. The spacing between the focal plane of the eyepiece and the coma corrector is important/critical in optimizing the correction of coma and it seems to be a matter of a few millimeters. The MPCC with it's spacing needs and the Paracorr with it's included tunable top clearly demonstrate this.But with a Binoviewer, the distance from the coma corrector to the focal plane of the eyepiece is several inches, this seems like a real problem. Ideally, you could have a coma corrector for each eyepiece but obviously that is impractical.Something to think about before diving in...
