Which spotting scope can fit and has infinity focus with the Baader zoom 8-24mm MK3 eyepiece? (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I am looking for a new spotting scope to upgrade from nikon ED50, either used ones or a new model. Now I am trying to find options for a scope (either previous or current model) that can fit the Baader 8-24mm MK3 zoom eyepiece that I already have and can still reach an infinity focus. Most of the scopes mentioned in the forums seem to fit the MK4 model.

I am wondering if anyone has used the MK3 eyepiece with any spotting scopes (and which adapters/modification etc) successfully?

Thank you so much,

The diameter of the barrel of the Mk4 is just a tiny bit too wide for the Opticron MM4 60mm, so I can’t say if could reach focus. I have thought about sanding things to fit, but held off so far.
