I'm selling my binoviewers. This item is a previously supercharged Arcturus binoviewer. Also included is the very nice pair of 30mm Plossl it ships with, and the handsome (and handy) wooden storage case.

These are my absolute favorite pair of binoviewers in the "entry" tier, just under the Denk super system. They have excellent optics and mechanics. The diopters are self centering, and I can use them with 10mm eyepieces without merging difficulties. The supercharge service combined with the short light path of the Arcturus means superb wide field views are possible. The removable nose piece allows the use of many different OCA / OCS lenses from different makers.

Please note - I am not selling any OCS with these, you will need your own depending on scope. For low power I ditched the low-quality OCS found in many entry level systems and picked up a Siebert Optics 1.25X. The combination of Supercharged Arcturus with short light path and the Siebert 1.25X makes it sing (in my 8" f/6 dob).

My favorite OCS for higher power is simply an Explore Scientific 2" 2X Barlow (which gives something like 3X in my scope), used either with the 30mm Plossls (these things were better than I was expecting, and very low profile), or a pair of 23-24mm 60-70* EPs.

I'm getting out of the binoviewer game because I just don't bring it out any more. I guess I'm a widefield cyclops at heart, and I like carrying less gear with me.

Price includes CONUS tracked shipping, PayPal preferred.
