Quote:Like the name of the post reads, It would be nice to know what binoculars, without restriction in price or size you'd like to own.
First and foremost observing love: naked eye.
Last but not least, telescopes.
And I sometimes dabble with cameras.

Quote:The problem with making a Binocular telescope with the NP-101s would be dealing the the rear elements. The distance from the rear Petzval to the focal plane is very short and with a 4 inch tube, some sort of staggered arrangement is necessary. It might be possible to find a way to fit it all together with a reduced tube diameter after a 90 degree mirror, depending on the size of the rear elements.

Hi Jon,It depends on how you make the binoscope. There are interesting binoscopes out there with Televue 101/127/140 using Matsumoto-san EMS visual back.Televue 140 (this must be one of a kind :http://www.page.sannet.ne.jp/mazmoto/wengler3-j.htmNP 127:http://www.page.sannet.ne.jp/mazmoto/kuroki-j.htmNP 101:http://sky.geocities.jp/sougankyousuki/pg74.htmlHere is more http://www.page.sannet.ne.jp/mazmoto/user-j.htmTammy
