Mitutoyo Binoviewer

I have a Mitutoyo binoviewer from a tooling microscope. It has a 26.5mm clear aperture and UWF10X eyepieces. I tried it in a 90mm F4.3 refractor and was really pleased with the sharp views.

Unfortunately, it needs too much in travel (4.44" compared to a Meade 3000 25mm Plossl). I had to remove the ring from the diagonal and the sleeve from the binoviewer to get it to focus. In order to use it normally, I need to pick up at least 1.75" of that in travel.

Any suggestions?
