Quote:They look beautiful! What objects were you observing with your MkV and RKE's? I've read a lot of good reports about them. How are the coatings and light transmission of these RKE's? In your attached photo, I do see a lot of bright reflections off of the eye lenses of the RKE's. Is this good? The reflections are the amount of light that's not getting through the eyepieces to your eyes.
Quote:Glad to hear you like them so much!
Dob guy for sure
Quote: So a pair of Televue Plossls of similar focal length wouldn't be as good?I d like to get a pair of these but the testimonials are so hit and miss. One camp sais the new ones have poor QC another sais they're fine.WHY. They are so good eludes me and why wouldn't Temevue for example make a similar performing ocular - or do they?Thanks!Pete
Quote:Even if RKEs wold cost 200$ per piece, I would buy them!
Quote:I use a full set of Rke's on my maxbrights, great views.
