Very interesting stuff Steve.

I've never got on too well with large binoculars (ie: over 50mm objective lenses) but your site gives some useful tips which I'm going to try with some 15x70's which are on their way to me.

Thanks :rolleyes:

I noted the individual focus photograph is equal to the centre focus (roof prism) photograph.

Ah, thanks for that -- now fixed. The problem with doing my html in a text editor is I don't get WYSIWYG of errors!

Thanks also for your kind words.
