I think the only problem is that many people think of included stuff as "free", which of course it isn't. So, somebody is paying for the "free" and "included" stuff, now guess who that is.

Both my Baaders over time (the ?mark 4?) and the Mark V came with little chips in their paint. Still nothing I've seen has touched their even light throughput, even color balance per eye, and extremely low - almost absent - scatter on bright subjects.

You pay for what you get, evidently they mean the optics and not the paint... this image is getting a little old but I have no intention to repeat the experiment I'm settled on the Baader Mark V.

Light/dark curves are left eye / right eye.
Three peaks are R,G,B

Anyone have views on whether a Mk V or a Denk Binotron 27 is better for a 6" Mak? If a Baader Prism 2" diagonal is so much superior over the mirror, why does Baader force the purchase of the dielectric mirror in the Mk V package? No comment on flaked paint. Things get damaged in shipping.

I had thought the reason Baader sells the 1.25" dielectric T2 mirror with the MkV now is they quite literally ran out of the 1.25" prisms? I didn't think it was simply to cut costs or some other nefarious reason. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong?

BTW Baader/Astro-Physics sells the Mark V Binoviewer with a 1.25" diagonal, it includes a 2" nosepiece to give maximum clear aperture in fast scopes.

PS - altho I have become a fan of the Baader T2 system, if I were buying new today might very well go with the new Binotron-27, I've owned Denk IIs before and they are excellent. I'm excited to hear reviews of the new Denk and I have almost ordered it several times.

Exactly what are the graphs supposed to be showing?
