Quote:I am considering getting a bino-viewer. I don't have a $1000+ for one (although I would love one like that ), a binoviewer for about $ 250 + or - $50 would be great, like:http://www.williamoptics.com/wo_shop/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=26_44&...Will this reach focus with my 8" f/6 dob? I have 40mm of back focus, would I need the 2x nosepiece corrector? The nosepiece extender? Ill use the supplied 20mm eyepieces and likely buy extra Hyperions or ill get ES eyepieces.Next, are there any other bino viewers I should consider?

The others that you see talked about here are much costlier...and probably give better viewing, but at a price to which, from your statement, you can't afford right now.
You might want to do the baby step and go with the WO or the Celestron.
