For those who’ve not spotted this....

Looks like a very useful tool for their binoculars, constantly wide and a good focal length length range, could replace a number of eyepieces I have floating about.

I would prefer to see a version with a 1.25" and/or 2" shaft to fit and focus in APM BTs with collet focusers.  Even though I like the Baader Mk IV zooms I have, I would be hesitant to buy a bino with fixed-in-place variable zooms.  Just too many other great fixed focal length eyepieces out there to miss having all that versatility.
