CN Report: The Denkmeier BIPH
Posted 06 August 2008 - 03:14 PM
Among the info is the statement that the BIPH has a field of view that is equivalent to 42-mm eyepiece (type of eyepiece unstated, but I would guess normal 50 deg. AFOV type).

The most interesting part of using the BIPH was how easy it was to incorporate in a night of viewing. It was swapped in and out of the telescope as easy as changing an eyepiece. The BIPH simply got out of the way and I really enjoyed looking at all kinds of objects going back and forth between a regular eyepiece and BIPH deciding which method looked better. It was a lot of fun and certainly one of those special nights of observing that I will remember for a long time.

I am still a little unsure about the manification of the device. For example, if I stick the BIPH into my TV, what magnification will I get? How about in my NexStar 6?
Also, does "effectively triple your aperature" seem way too good to be true? If I get one of these, my TV-85 now becomes a 255mm refractor in light gathering?
