Do we disclose this immediately, or does it require initiation rites as 
with the Wyoming Secret Factory Saga, 520 Nano-Meter Meaning, and the Tales 
of Toky and Vert?

Wish I could help you with the eye-coupler.  I have the varimagnifinder, 
but in my use of it I've never found a need for the eye-coupler.  From the 
system documentation, the eye-coupler is supposed to have two uses, one 
with the varimagnifinder and the other with the 250-frame film back and 
eyecup 1:

(a) backing off the varimagnifinder enough from the viewfinder to give a 
magnified full frame view (without anyt further magnification though).  The 
varimagnifinder alone only shows the central portion of the frame when 2.5X 
magnification is switched in.

(b)  allowing the eyecup 1 to be used with the 250-frame film back.  Unlike 
the Eyecup 2, the cup on the Eyecup 1 extends below the top edge of the 
camera back.  This requires the Eyecup 1 must be removed prior to opening 
the camera back (with or without eye-coupler) . . . and that its cup 
interferes with the thicker 250-frame film back without something (the 
eye-coupler) to set it back from the viewfinder.
