What are the real measurements in AFOV for all of the settings?  I also mean in between the click-stops as well. 

I just bought one of these. I have used it twice and I am really liking it. 

 

There should be 9 settings.

 

Click stops:

 

24mm

20mm

16mm

12mm

8mm

 

In between the click-stops:

 

22mm

18mm

14mm

10mm

 

If someone could copy / paste the click-stops and in between, and add in the AFOV for each, that would be great.

 

Thanks!

Here some AFov  measurements about the Mark III, from the master Edzbow.gif :

I think the difference between the M III and M IV is not that big if any.

I am European for several tenths of centuries, Baader in Germany uses pricing from another planet.
If they ever start using a reasonable pricing they might conquer the EU market, making profit from enormous numbers of sales and close the door to Asian goods.

But I do not think of them to be that smart.

 

From the other hand I am now thinking that possibly 8-24mm Baader Mark III Zoom, this would be overkill solution if used with 60d refractor and over a plastic focuser.

Not the answer I am looking for. 

 

Thanks to the others with the information I needed. :)

Oh no, you will not get away with a simple thanks, you will bake or mail a large cake to Jon.

Personally I do not need a sample of it.
