I know that Cats don’t need an optical corrector for binoviewers, but does that still apply if you have a .63 reducer? Does the standard cat have the focus travel?

Hi Kevin,

I don't know the answer, but maybe you should ask around in the binoviewers forum.

BTW, did you write a review of the Burgess 70mm Mak? I seem to remember talking about those a while ago and wondered how they were. Was it you who posted on those? Thanks.

No it was not I. I wasn't particularly impressed with it and have rarely used it, but it is much smaller than my C80Ed and thus more convenient for the rare birding or any other daytime use. I feel that the magnification is too high for its meager 70mm aperture.
Oh, I believe it would have been MUCH better if it had a stadard visual back instead of the built-in 45* prisim.

Check out the Denkmeier site (http://deepskybinoviewer.com) . They make premium binoviewers and "powerswitches " which are 2" diagonals with built in barlow and focal reduction modes They should know as well as anyone.
