Quote:With the help of Rex I found a 1.25 extension at Scopestuff. I measured and it will probably be only about 1mm too long and that should work so I ordered it.

Quote:BTW did you ever get your 2.6 GPC to work in the proper orientation in your Herschel Wedge? You may recall http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/5230304/Main....
Quote:Thanks for explaining this, Dave. At least you got it working. The other alternative would be to use shorter focal length EPs in the bino with the 1.7 GPC which also is not recommended but some do it successfully I have heard. I have the same problem with installing the 2.6 GPC in my Lunt LS100 solar refractor. You can't put it in the Lunt diagonal so I have been using it positioned in the same way as the 1.7. I haven't done a critical analysis and I am not that experienced but it worked for high magnification views of prominences. You mention the thread with the disassembled 2.6. Coincidence that I just bought that reversed 2.6 GPC from George. Just this morning! So I wonder the same thing about why they made it that way and if it will be as good but I am going to try it and compare with the one I have. Maybe they made it for the Maxbright. Don't the GPCs work differently in those binos. Not sure. I seem to remember reading that they do and I also thought I remember reading that Baader was considering making a different version of the 2.6. I am not sure in what way. Anyway, all very interesting. Thanks for your explanation.
