* Typical Value, measured at f/5.5.  Effective Path Length will be slightly different due to optical effect of prism on path length (less path length is required for scopes faster than f/5.5, more for longer scopes).


** When using the T2-08 plus T2-27 with the Herschel Wedge, the range of clearance from top of the T2-08 to the filter glass surface is 38-44mm.
