No problem; the German thread does have a few more images, always nice to see such an impressive instrument.

If I had that kind of money, I'd spend it on a better location before better equipment.

Well, I do have a better location. My parents in law live close to the paranal observatory in Chile. I could imagine that a bino like that would give nice views out there in the desert. :grin:
