Re: Denkmeier (Denk) Standard vs. Denk II

I recently compared the two binoviewers in several sessions. I really enjoyed the individual eyepiece focusers, although it took awhile to get used to them. The views were very, very similar through the Denk 1 and Denk 2, but at times of steadiest seeing, I believe I saw a tad more resolution and/or intraplanetary contrast in the Denk 2, but it was minor. Also, I may have detected a tiny bit more resolution on M15 at various magnifications in the Denk 2.

Personally, I find this a tough question. If you really want the best, go with the Denk 2, the individual eyepiece focuser alone will assure you the sharpest views more regularly. If you are on a budget there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Denk 1, and it performs close enough to the Denk 2 that it is pushing my "fairly" experienced eyes to the limit.

Todd,

Again, thanks for the work.

Did you see any color difference between the two ep's in the Denk or Denk II? There have been a couple reports of that and I was wondering if everyone saw it.

Clear skies,

Tom
