I'm looking to pair an FC-76DCU with a good pair of binoviewers, and the Maxbright II has come into my sights as a primary contender.  I've been told that one can attach the FS60/FC76DC 2" focuser directly to the FC-76DCU objective, and that the back focus gained by removing the 80mm diameter spacer tube between the objective and the focuser will effectively allow for binoviewers to be used without a GPC with the FC-76DCU objective assembly.  Has anyone tried this with the Maxbright II / FC-76DCU as a combo?  

 

Thanks in advance for your time.
