I am only person in world who will offer you Supercharge service of very popular binoviewers like Baader Mark V and Carl Zeiss equal binoviewers!
Also, I can do Supercharge on your William Optics, Celestron, Baader Maxbright, Astro-Professional, Telescope Service, Omegon and simillar binos!
With Supercharge serivice you will definetly increase prformance of your bino, and you absolutely do not loose any of optical performance, so definetly no any additional internal reflections or simillar unwanted stuffs, contrary, you get even LESS internal reflections after my inside blackening of bino and glasses which are not blackened!
What I can do in regard of Mark V and Zeiss is:
---on left eyepiece side there is 30mm Clear Aperture prisms (Supercharged), while originally it is 28mm Clear Aperture
---on right eyepiece side there is 28mm Clear Aperture prisms(Supercharged), while originally it is 26mm Clear Aperture (yes, it is originally ONLY 26mm Clear Aperture field stop inside binoviewer, so you do not see it clear when using lets say Panoptic 24mm or ES 24mm 68 deg FOV eyepeices. Do simple test: look through back side of binoviewer and cover one eyepeice side with hand, and then quickly change hand to other eyepiece side and repeat it constantly. You will clearly see that diameter on left and right side is not equal like Baader specifie 28mm Clear Aperture on all sides).
---on telescope side you have full 30mm Clear Aperture prisms (Supercharged), while originally it is 28mm Clear Aperture.
With this, bigger opening on back side, you will be able to collect more precious light from your scope, especially from scopes with fast focal ratios!
All this will allow you (when we talk about Mark V and Zeiss like binos) to use Panoptics 24mm (with field stop 27mm), Explore Scientific 24mm 68deg FOV (with field stop 28mm) or simillar eyepieces who have field stop 27mm or 28mm, without any vignetting, and without any blurredd edged in field of view!
When we talk about binos like William Optics, Celestron, Baader Maxbright, Astro-Professional, Telescope Service or simillar, you get Clear Apertures from approx 20mm on each eyepiece side, to full 25mm!
This looks like this:
---25mm Clear Aperture (Supercharged) prisms on each eyepiece side, instead 20mm Clear Aperture prisms like in original setup
---24.5mm to max 25mm Clear Aperture (Supercharged) prisms on telescope side (depending on bino model), instead 23mm Clear Aperture prisms like in original setup.
I guarantee about your binoviewers once I get them in my hands, so if someting get wrong, like some broken parts, I get same NEW unit for you all at my costs! Fortunately, this never happned so far!
After my Supercharging, you have:
***FREE lifetime support and service like FREE collimation
***explanation how to do collimation by yourself at home easily (noone in world wont give you such instructions)
***FREE lifetime cleaning
***FREE repair service if needed in case I can fix issue!
Here you can see one of comments I get from one of my costumers after Supercharging Mark V binoviewer:
"Fantastic experience! I had Denis examine, clean, collimate and supercharge my Mark V and I have to say that he was the ultimate professional. Excellent communication throughout the process, he gave me simple instructions in order to ship the bino, sent me emails and even photographs of each step he made, then promptly shipped it back. The whole process only took a couple of weeks including the shipping. Inexpensive, excellent service and trustworthy. Of course they work great! A far better option than sending these to the manufacturer and spending 3 times as much and wait for weeks for service. Denis also provided me with simple instructions so I can collimate in the future on my own. Absolutely my highest recommendation - 5+++++ Stars!"
Each Supercharge Service will cost you 100 USD, and you cover shipping costs to your home adress, which is fully tracked for 20 USD via airmail priority!
Do not hasistate to put any inquiry about your binoviewers, and dont forget:
I do this job with LOTS of love and passion!!!
Some of frequently asked questions with answers:
1) What benefit will Supercharging give me? Larger FOV? Brighter image? Something else?
***You get a bit more precious incoming light, to any of your scopes, especially from faster ones. Also, you can use eyepieces with larger field stops, so it means wider fields of views, and you can use eyepieces with longer focal lengths without any / with less vignetting (depending on bino model).
2) Is there any disadvantage to supercharging (standard parts don't fit any more, fixtures less secure, less metal so system is not as strong...etc.etc)?
***Absolutely no disadvantages, everything works perfectly. With Supercharge service you will definitely increase performance of your bino, and you absolutely do not loose any of optical or mechanical performance, so definitely no any additional internal reflections or similar unwanted stuff. On the contrary, you get even FEWER internal reflections after my inside blackening of bino and glasses which are not blackened. Mechanically everything is as before, sometimes even sturdier.
3) If you Supercharge, do you re-collimate afterwards (I dropped my bino once, and I think it might need re-collimating anyway)?
***Of course I do perfect collimation and cleaning optics after Supercharge all for free, no matter if it is out of collimation before I do Supercharge.
4) Can you do a check up on the Binoviewer as part of the Supercharge (see if I cracked or chipped some optics when I dropped it)?
***Of course I will check all before Supercharge, all for free and will inform you if there are some broken/cracked parts like metal/plastic or optics.
5) What is the cost of this service including shipping back to the US?
***Supercharge is 100 USD only, + 20 USD for shipping back.
6) Do you know roughly what the cost is for shipping the binoviewer to Croatia?
***If you ship bino from USA, using via USPS with low insurance is approx 20 - max 30 USD.
7) How long will it take you to supercharge and then return the binoviewer?
***Once I receive item, Supercharge will take 2-3 days only, so no long waiting times. After that I wait for first clean night to do perfect collimation on stars, and then I ship your packet with bino via airmail priority fully tracked shipping which usually takes 5-10 working days only.
Kind regards from Croatia
