Harry (of Siebert Optics) informed me that if you purchase his ep’s, he personally collimates and matches the ep’s. He puts a small white dot on the ep for alignment, which makes for easy merging. I find this a buying point for the Black Night binoviewers and ep’s. He is also offering 24.5mm ep’s in his inventory, it’s just not on the web site yet. I wonder if Denkmeier does anything like that? Black Nights are leading the pack for me so far.

Hello David

"Harry (of Siebert Optics) informed me that if you purchase his ep’s, he personally collimates and matches the ep’s. He puts a small white dot on the ep for alignment, which makes for easy merging."

Does this mean you can't mix up the eyepieces, ie: put the "left" ep in the "right" side?

"I wonder if Denkmeier does anything like that?"

I was under the impression that with a quality binoviewer and eyepieces, this wasn't neccessary in order to merge easily.
