Having discovered my eyes are too close together smile.gif  the Arcturus is out and a pristine Maxbright is in.

 

It has come with a 2 in nosepiece. Apart from saving about 8mm path, is there any advantage to the 2in fov wise ?

Does that bottleneck lie elsewhere ?

Thanks for indulging a noob :)

Nope, 2” nosepiece has no advantages. The bottleneck is the binoviewer prism size, a 1.25” nosepiece will not cause any issues. Use what’s most convenient, or saves you the most light path.

Enjoy the binoviewers!

Great thanks !

Looks like things have clouded over but I presumably can't reach focus yet, so moot point :)

No, there is no advantage using 2" nosepiece.
