A little fuzzy on which system would be required for the Televue 76 refractor. Is the 1.25 inch vs 2 inch a light/field of view issue or a compatability issue? What do I need to make this puppy work, believe I have come down with the fever! Many thanks, colin

Best thing to do is to email or call Russ at Denkmeier. I don't think anyone is more qualified to answer your questions than Russ! I've called and talked to him, he answered all my questions. Nice person!

The advise to talk to Russ is right. A very good guy, very helpful. I just got a Denk Deep Sky and have used it just a bit in my TV85.

Regarding your question-if I understand it correctly-it's a "light/fov issue". You can use the 1.25 or 2" OCS. For the 76, you'll need a part T and part S with the 1.25" setup (along with the part O).

If you go 2", you'll need a part SR along with the part O. Russ will set you straight on it. I was out last night with it and was pleased with it, need to get it to a darker sky site so I can see what this li'l puppy can really do....
Good luck,
