Orion Binoviewers Discontinued
      #5522707 - 11/16/12 11:18 AM

I spoke with an Orion customer service rep this morning and they confirmed that the Orion branded binoviewers have recently been discontinued. They speculated that there might be a replacement in the works, but were unable to confirm that as being the case.

I'm hoping for a new improved version. That would be exciting.

just got an Orion BV with EP set off ebay today. this will be my first try at binoviewing and money is tight as I'm having to buy a whole setup from the start.
anyway I got the BV and a set of Orion 25mm E-lux EP's with the case for $170 shipped. so this is where the fever starts all over again LOL.
