    Re: Inverting Scope

    To SNO-T users:
    I finally found and fixed both problems with my
    inverting scope which I mentioned several times
    on this list!
    The objective lens in my scope was for some reasons
    reversed when the scope arrived. Putting it in correct
    way removed both the "coma" and focusing problem.
    Now I really see how excellent the optics is:-)
    It is indeed superior of my 8x30 prismatic binocular,
    contrary to what I said before.
