Quote:The ATX 95 objective module is attached to mount plate by what they call "tripod ring." There is an issue with the tripod ring to get OTA aligned reliably. Since the tripod ring is designed to rotate OTA easily on the fly, loosen, rotate and then fasten, the convenient feature becomes disadvantage for binoscope.
I had to loosen/fasten the tripod ring to make two OTAs align precisely to get image merged at 213x. Once the adjustment is done, there is no issue merging at the high power. It must be loosen during shipment.
I noticed that distance between two OTAs (ie: IPD) must be readjusted slightly to get comfortable depending on eyepiece (exit pupil size dependent?) I guess I do that with binoviewer naturally. IPD adjustment is bit more cumbersome with this binoscope. So it is probably not user friendly scope if you want to share the view with others who has different IPD.
Quote:Tammy,Now that you have had the ATX 95 binoscope for a while, I would be interested in hearing about its performance both as is and as compared to the ATX 95 spotting scope you also have. So what are the differences between the prism/eyepiece configurations, and do they influence the optical quality much.A comparison with the Kowa Highlander would also interest many of us.Kimmo
