I have a Universal Denk II setup that has served well, but lately I've been giving serious thought to having a go with a 2" system. It would be mated to any of the following: 18" f/4.5 reflector, 8.25" Achromatic refractor, 11" SCT. I may at some point move up to a C14.
Issues? Thoughts?
Bring it on! grin

I've thought about this a time or two. But given the weight and expense in a 2-inch binoviewer and good eyepieces for it...I'm a-sticking with my Denk. LOL
