Quote: this fills the empty space between 100mm binoculars which are becoming more common and the 150mm fujis
The night sky is the canvas....
My optics are the brush....
The Milky Way is the masterpiece
reductio ad absurdum of epistomology is solipsism....

Quote: I have had a 6 inch APO refractor for quite a few years.....I have taken the scope out just once in 2008.
Quote:I have not had that problem with the Vixen BT 80 or the new Garrett 100 45 in daylight viewing. Brian.
Quote:.............................. I know three members of this forum who owned the Fujinon 25X150. ............ the other reports he uses his 13 lb 100mm Miyauchi much more frequently..................
Quote:Six years ago I used to dream about owning a pair of Fujinon 25 or 40X 150. After purchasing more than a 1/2 dozen binos from 12X50 to 54X100 my priorities have changed.
Quote:When it comes to light-gathering, a pair of 7x50 binoculars outside will gather far more light than a 20" Dob sitting in a closet.
On a more positive note, I probably will be taking the big fujis more to dark sites in the next few years to work on the Astronomical Leagues proposed Dark Nebula program, where the binoculars should be the best instrument for the job.
