Imagine the light gathering power of two 4" refractor telescopes - one for each eye! Use your favourite 1.25" standard astro eyepieces for daytime nature viewing, or lunar and deepsky observation. You can even use Altair 1.25" City Light Suppression CLS filters, which isn't possible with normal binoculars.
The included 18mm Ultra-flat eyepieces give a 65° field of view, and the overall brightness of the images is quite surprising compared with using binoviewers in a 100mm telescope with the same aperture, because each eye get's 100% of the light from 100mm aperture objective lens.
The 1.25" self-centering eyepiece holder focal position allows most eyepieces to come to focus including Altair Astro, Tele Vue Delos, Nagler, Panoptic, and the Docter 12.5 mm UWA. Of course you can also use standard 1.25" astronomy filters on the eyepieces to enhance viewing even more.
Every binocular has collimation checked before shipping ensuring you of the highest quality images possible.
Mounting the binoculars:
For terrestrial use and casual astronomical use we recommend a large sturdy video and or camera tripod. We recommend the Altair Sabre mount with vixen clamps and Heavy Duty L-Bracket for more serious or extended observation especially at higher powers.
Very bright image and large field of view, well suited for observation of bright deepsky objects.
Independent helical focusers with self-centering compression eypiece holders.
Enables use of 1.25" Light Pollution filters, such as the Altair Premium 1.25" CLS filters.
Extra large 28mm prisms with top quality broadband multi-coatings on all optical surfaces.
High quality independently focusing 1.25" eyepiece holders - compression-fit with self centEring brass inserts.
Tough, light magnesium alloy casing.
Includes a carry handle with sight.
Extensible dew shields. Dew shield ID thread: M 116 x 1-6H, 6 mm depth.
Includes front dustcaps and rear dust plugs. Both eyepieces have dust caps.
The base has a standard 3/8" Photo tripod thread and 1/4" Photo tripod adapter so you can use your giant binoculars with a standard tripod. An additional pair of in-line threaded holes allow mounting on a Vixen-format dovetail bar, or the new Single-Arm Binocular mount (code: BINOMOUNT1).
