For sale is a pair of William Optic binoviewers. A previous owner attempted to clean these, and they are smudged and possibly damaged. After receiving them I thought I would attempt cleaning, but then a pair of nice supercharged Arcturus BV's with self centering diopters popped up for sale, and these just sat on my shelf.

If anyone is interested in trying to rescue a pair of BVs, wants a project, or just wants an ultra-cheap pair of BVs (they are serviceable) to see if they like two-eye viewing, let me know!

These are being sold AS IS, with no returns. I've tried my best to capture the optical surfaces here. There are two main issues:
- Dirty external surfaces, which are likely cleanable back to good condition
- Two small smudges (a 2-4 mm long by 1 mm wide or so) internal to the binoviewer. These don't affect widefield views that I can see, but they certainly aren't new condition any more! I'm told internal smudges may not be possible to clean, due to how the optics are coated.

OCS and EPs are not included.

Price is $30 plus shipping cost, PayPal preferred.
