Quote:NLV's are excellent in bino's. I haven't tried to remove the twist up eyecup but I guess it's possible, they would be as thin as a Plossl. Matt
Quote:Matt, I have a pair of 30mm NPLs, and find that they are not too big. Maybe I'll try a pair NLVs, either 12mm or 20mm. I wish there was a 16mm version.
Quote:Try a pair of RKE 28mm (about 24mm of eye clearance).Rex
Quote:What eyepieces do you use? My IPD is around 62mm, so "fat" eyepieces do not work.
