CZJ orthos work fine in my Mark V binos (5 inch apo refractor).

The only issue is with stray light. There are no rubber eye guards on mine, so I sometimes have to cup my hands around the eyepieces to cut out the stray light.

I used to own pairs of all the CZJ orthos except the 8mm. They are so rare I never could get anyone to part with theirs so I could have a pair. I still have a pair of the 12.5 orthos, but the others have been replaced with ZAO-II.

Cheers,

Ron

Tom,

Sounds like a good plan to me. I am NOT in favor of changing the Glass Path Corrector during a session. It is far too easy to drop it or stick your thumb on it as you dismantle the pieces.

I do my setting up before I go outside and spend the time outside enjoying the views.

Cheers,

Ron
