Quote:"Crashing Bino Syndrome" as it pertains to the Mark V, may be traced back to some not fully tightening the setscrew on the Quick Release adapter. The screw would then loosen further, fall out, and provoke tears.

The screw would then loosen further, fall out, and provoke tears.There's no maybe about it, that's the only thing it could possibly be. Keeping the large easy-to-see, easy-to-grab screw tightened with a gentle twist is all that's required. I've never come close to dropping my Mark Vs. Someone mentioned it being too short. I lengthened mine with an inch of hard rubber fuel hose purchased for a few cents from an auto parts store.
Quote:Good point on using the BV in the 80mm...
Are their any updates about your comparison of the binoviewers?
Quote: -Cost is off the table as a determining factor -Flexibility, reliability, ease of use, and service after the sale are the primary concerns Would you choose the Mark V or the Binotron? ...Or would you consider a 2" system (Siebert)?

Quote:I love my mrk5s perfect fov in 24pans. Denki, I dislike the way in lower power arm you get vignetting plus you can see uneven brightness around one edge of the fov... caused by the power switch lens getting in the way! Really annoying

Quote:Yes, the power switch can be removed. It unscrews from the bino body. The nose can then be threaded directly into the bino body.
