Hi all -
I just picked up a cheap pair of Arcturus BV's a couple weeks ago. The supplied eyepieces I had trouble with blackouts so they were really hard to test and get merging to work. So I ordered a pair of AstroTech value plossls which are sharp @ 80% way to the edge of field when using in mono mode but I popped them into my BV's and the stars were all long streaks. I had to pack up because of clouds before I could do much around adjusting but I've owned several pairs of BV's over the years from cheap clones to Binotron's and have never seen these artifacts before. Is this something that can be adjusted out or is it just completely out of alignment. What's weird is in the 30mm supplied EP's while I had trouble using the EP's it didn't seem to be so wildly out of collimation (if that's what it is). I haven't dropped or roughly handled anything so I'm not sure what's going on.
