Harry-

I have some questions about the new premium binoviewer.

1)
Do you know if the Denkmeier starsweeper will work your new premium binoviewer?


2)
Your 1.25" 1.3x OCA for Televue binos will work with your new premium binoviewers, correct?


3)
Are the Denkmeier 1.25" OCA's (for Newtonians) 1.2x rather than the 1.3x of your own 1.25" OCA's, and will they also work with your new premium binoviewers?

4)
Denkmeier is talking about "100% dielectric coatings on the prism surfaces and the beamsplitter". Does this refer to anti-reflective coatings, and how do the anti-reflective coatings on your upcoming premium binoviewer compare?

(I know you have not yet decided between single coatings and multiple coatings on the prisms. You seem to feel that single coatings can produce less scatter, even though they have less transmittance.)

We would be happy to explain the difference between 100% Dielectric Coatings on the Beam Splitter Vs The Status Quo. Simply email us via our Website.We will post additional information there under "Optical Quality".
