Now for something different new
      #5646511 - 01/27/13 05:35 PM

Here is a site I found with a device I may explore just for the fun of it.
Could take video astronomy, for me, in a different direction especially with viewing without disturbing others with bright lights.

I've often wondered about rigs like this, but have never been willing to pay the fare to find out.

I used the MYVUs for a time. They gave a simulated 50" view. The actual connection interface was bulky and battery life was short. The views were very nice. I am probably going to try these just for fun. You never know.

Looks interesting , besides not disturbing others you also have the advantage of a small lightweight easy to carry display . Lighter than a Speco for sure . I'm sure this statement will infuriate the Speco fans now .
