After 40 years of on-off observing last night was the first time I used a binoviewer. I put the baader MarkV with 1.25 relay in the CFF350 f15 classical cassegrain and pointed it to Jupiter. Please note that for 51degrees north the planet is quit low and I have a short timeslot to observe it in between 2 buildings.
I ordered the explore scientific LE 26mm eyepieces since the 15 and 10mm eudisascopic ones that came with the second hand bino are a bit too high magnification for this scope, they will be used in the 130mm f9 ed vixen. with glasses I get 90% of the view easily, without there is no effort to get a full view.
The view was spectacular, it helps having a well cooled down cassegrain that was well collimated a few days before using an asi174 to examine.
I have never seen Jupiter like this. 4 moons with some atmospheric diffraction effect over the distict moon disks.
The cloud surface showed bands like I never before saw them. Does binoviewing help combat bad seeing?
It took a few minutes to relax my dominant eye and to tell the brain that the telescope view was now with 2 eyes, from that moment on the subtle festoons and 2 white dots on the other side were so evident you did not have to strain. It helps of course to have a purpose built "planetary" cassegrain and catalin and his team have made a superb telescope.
Merging the images was automatic.
In the 80s I used an 8 inch f8.5 (with a self polished mirror) small diagonal newtonian that showed very nice images of the moon mars and jupiter, but with the binoviwer this is another level of easy viewing of details.
I bet that at a viewing night with guests and the moon high in the sky I will have to drag people away from the eyepiece to let others view.
On the genesis SDF I use the baader glaspathcorrector to get into focus.
