The Standard Binoviewer With SCD Holders|
As with all of our binoviewers, this model is assembled in our Maryland, U.S.A. facility and undergoes meticulous quality control measures all along the way. We hand collimate each and every unit and check the diopters for motion and feel. Our internal lubricant is rated for smooth motion from +120 to -120 degrees Farenheit so those customers in Norway, Canada, Alaska, Sweden and all pounts north need not worry about locking up. That goes for the interpupillary motion as well.
The photo above shows the SCD Holders. Notice that they are set at different heights. The allow individual eyepiece focus to be accomplished smoothly and with great accuracy. We spent many months designing and testing the threads until we got it right! The SCDs are extremely well recieved by customers all arounf the world. The special internal threads allow focus change at a very nice speed. What we mean by this is that focus changes are easy to detect but not too slow or fast. Merges is maintaned because the machining of the SCD holders is specified at very high tolerances. The top ring (black) locks the eyepiece in the holder by collapsing an internal split ring. After this is done, the silver lower ring may be used to change focus in either eyepiece. These holders are made from quality aluminum material and then clear anodized and black anodized. These are not plastic!
All of our binoviewers will accept any Denkmeier accessory that we make. If you are purchasing a Denk Power x Switch Star Diagonal and are deciding on a model of Binoviewer, this is a very economical choice. No Power x Switch or Optical Corrector System is needed in that situation. Just load this Standard Binoviewer with SCDs in the diagonal and you are ready to Power Switch. See our Star Diagonal section for more information.
