Transmission numbers for the newer Brandon's?
      #5617977 - 01/11/13 08:41 PM

I have seen posts in the past of various transmission characteristics of well know ep's. Has anyone measured the transmission of the newer Brandon's with the straw coatings? It would be interesting to see how they stack up to the transmission of fully multicoated ep's. bc

I have measured the transmission of various eyepieces but I don't own Brandons. May be a little provocative, but if you think that maximum transmission is very important then Brandons don't come to mind because of their MgF2 coatings.
Neverthless, I would also like to know the transmission of Brandonds, I am just curious.
