Quote:He has been busy working on other binoscopes for Japanese star party called "Soh-bo-e", two-observe-meeting or binoculars star party on Nov. 1st-3rd.http://soboe.web.fc2.comYou can follow link to see many unique ATM binoculars, scopes there.http://soboe.web.fc2.com/report.html
Quote:In terms of cost, two ATX 95 objective lens modules $3,800, EMS $1,600, guesstimate of other parts $1,000+. I guess around $7,000 compact 95mm f/5.8 binoscope. I think Swarovski ATX objective lens module includes field flattener. There is a report below, stating that it produces pin-point star to the edge with Nagler.Tammy
Quote:From what I see in the ATX 95, I don't really think that a double mirror EMS system can have that much better transmission and contrast, but could be wrong about that.
Quote: One real advantage of the EMS system would be the possibility to reach proper high magnifications. The 72x of the ATX eyepiece falls short of delivering what the scope is capable of.

Quote: Anyway the X95 is also slower than the TMB and also has at least more 2 lens, from the internal focuser... But I'm very curious with Tammy's evaluation...
