Quote:I tried a 35mm extension tube, but guess it was too long? I spoke to OPT last night and they have a 25mm tube extension that he thought would do the trick, so maybe try that? I'm going to try screwing in the 1.6x and then manually pull the BV out of the focuser to see if there is a just right distance and mark it. Then I will have a better idea how much of an extension I need.
Quote:i had the same problem as you with my WO binoviewer and solved it, thanks to help from this forum. i ordered this from siebert optics:
i use this with my A12 and my WO binoviewer. works great, and i get three magnification options.

Quote:Same exact setup I use. It even let me use my WO with a Firstscopehttp://www.celestron.com/astronomy/series/firstscope-telescope/?cat=4No kidding.That said, you also have another BV set to try, and it probably makes sense to only keep one.
Quote:You used WO binoviewers with a Siebert OCA in a Firstscope mini-dob? How did you manage that - did you only use part of the OCA? I remember trying that when I first bought my binoviewers, but it looked like the OCA would hit the secondary mirror, so I gave up. Maybe I'll have to take another look at that!
Quote:Be very careful if you do, if they touch then you could scrape the OCA lens or coating! I used the 1.25x setup. I was trying to get a large FOV, and I did...P.S. that's why I didn't post pics or talk about it much, I don't recommend it.
Quote:Ha ha - you're careful not to say much, then mention it in an unrelated thread, and I immediately want to try it! Thanks for warning.Anyway, I've used the WO binoviewers in a 10" dob, but I had to use the Siebert OCA.
