Quote:I was wondering if anyone has tried to make Schmidt Cassagrain binoculars. Ive been contemplating building some out of two C11's or two C8's using maybe 3 diagonals for each scope.to get the inner pupil distance adjustable. Myself and some friends are gonna experiment with this idea in the coming weeks because we have all the scopes and parts to give it a try. Anyone ever try this before?
