Need Binoviewer Info

Got a Binoviewer question. I also posted a similar question in the Binoviewer forum.

I just took a good look at the Highpoint Scientific listing for the BV-125. According to HS, they are selling the "C" model of the binoviewers which looks to have some nice (needed) improvements.

1) It looks like you replaced the single metal set screw with 3 nylon set screws. To my mind this would make collimating the EPs easier when focussing for mismatched eyes.

2) HS says that the "C" model has a full 22mm CA. I would assume that this means that the nosepiece baffle has been removed/replaced.

Bill, can you confirm this info for me?

Is your question directed to Bill Burgesss? If so, I don't think he posts here anymore. He posts occassionally on the Yahoo Burgess Refractor group. You may want to email him directly at his web site or just call him.....

Bill "never" did post here...

If you can't get an answer from Bill ( e-mail or phone-call) I would e-mail Highpoint... they may both be busy trying to get ready for the WSP though...
