I´m receiving a pair too here in Colombia since I´m planning on distributing those also. The Chinese said that they'll send only 25x eyepieces since 2" eps out there are better than theirs, so 30x and 35x are out. They also said about the IPD, fortunately I have 64mm, so I would be enough, but very close, not everyone will be using those. For the set I ordered, they are going to include a pair of 2" to 1.25" adapters to widen the posibilities of EPs used, since 2" eps may work but wont leave enough space for the nose... I just ordered a pair of 21mm Denkmeier eps.... hope those work :)
As EDJ said, I'll be testing those compared whit my Fuji's to state differences, we'll see...

we will use diffrent eyepieces which gives 27 power with a wider field of 70° and better overal performance , that big Bino has big potential and we working on some other nice upgrates already :-)

Wow. I mean...WOW. Five minutes of scanning the Milky Way from the Texas Star Party with those, and I might be totally catatonic for the rest of my life.

I will try to provide some more information on the tripod for you.

I expect that shortly we will be offering a package without the tripod and mount for those who have or prefer to get their own.
