Hi Jeff,
I have a different version of the same binoviewer. Mine has a 1.25” nosepiece instead of the T2 coupling. However the nosepiece can be unscrewed from the BV’s body. I am wondering what the revealed thread size is. Unfortunately I don’t have the right tools to measure this. It looks like it may be an M32 thread?

How do these work for you? I am looking for some feedback of this pair.  Thanks

They are generally a very good unit. The ONLY real negative are the eyepiece holders (see descriptions in above discussion), which I fixed with a bit of normal strength thread locker.

Quick update on this unit. TS have released a pdf which shows that it can be user collimated. The text is in German, but the photos speak for themselves.

I have not tried this as I managed to achieve good alignment when I glued down the eyepiece holders with threadlocker (in the second try!). You may proceed at your own risk...
