Sorry for the poor photos.  Still working on getting the settings right on my LG G3 phone.  That should convey the idea.

Matt,

The way I found out the eye cups were removable was when I called Maven to wonder why they weren't.  To my chagrin, I found out they were.  Mine were tight, and I was reluctant to use much force.  Yes, I have already slapped myself upside the head!Hammer Hit

Steve,

Your finished results look impressive for those who wear eyeglasses & want additional FOV.  Cool

Do you notice a difference in the FOV?

I prefer Porro prism binoculars especially those made in Japan. (i.e. Minox BD 10x44 BP) 8>)

Frank,

To clarify, the B3's eyecups are also removeable?


Steve,

On your pics, it just looks like you are inside the minimum focus distance for your camera, so it is focussing on background items.  Giving a little more distance will probably solve the issue.

Thanks Matt, Big Smile I have come to that conclusion too.  I started wondering when I saw I could read the headstamp in those 308 military cases.  I found it also works better to knock the pixel count down too.  That is the 13 MP camera on my LG G3 smartphone, I have not taken many photos with it. Ordered a digiscoping adapter, so there is another learning curve ahead as well.

Yes, that is correct. The B3s are removable.

Very nice.  Add that to threaded objective barrels and a standard tripod exit, and it seems that Maven is one company that provides usefull features on their products, rather than gelding them arbitrarily.

 Go for it.  Maven has a demo program.  Let us know how it performs.

Hi, Steve:

I'm certain I'm a dunce for not knowing William Bruce Cameron. However, I'm with it enough to know the quote you have given to him originated with one of the Einstein Brothers ... Either Frank Einstein or Albert Einstein.

https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/eparenting/2013/09/25/everything-that-can-be-counted-does-not-necessarily-count-everything-that-counts-cannot-necessarily-be-counted-albert-einstein/

I was taken to task elsewhere for attributing the quote to Einstein.  The first link is one attributing it to Cameron.  The other attributes it to Einstein.  No source I found attributing it to Einstein actually attributes the circumstance, time,or place where he said it.  It is just said he said it.

There are several sources like the first link which define the place and time where Cameron said it.

Take your pick, I doubt anyone knows if Einstein said it or not.

Hi, Steve:

Apparently, my humor was too subtle—“Frank Einstein.” There are so many sayings attributed to Albert that he never uttered. But since Cameron was a humorist who was born 8 years after Einstein’s death, I’ll give it to the old guy. Besides, it is most definitely in keeping with his way of thinking.

Please just remember with that information and a buck ... you can buy a Coke. Confused

I am just using Google Chrome—as suggested to me—to see if I can duplicate any of the problems I have been having with FireFox. This is working as it should. Thank you. Now, can you tell my why FireFox has worked with everything I have tried to do but will work only in bizarre ways with OT?

 Bill:

I will offer one bit of advice that may help, use another browser, I like to use Explorer
mostly, Fire fox also, but sometimes it has its problems.

More than one browser gives you options, just like binoculars.
