Our Arcturus Brand Binoviewers are new from the same plant in China that makes the same ones for other name brands such as William Optics, Celestron, Stellarvue, & Orion.
Eyepieces shown in the photos are included!
The Arcturus brand however has several important features not presently found in the competition mentioned above:
1. Our binos come with 2 screw in barlows, one at 1.85x and one at 3.0x that replace the standard 1.25" barrel.
2. There are no setscrews used on these binoviewers. The eyepieces are held in place with self centering brass compression rings. Brass will stand up to the weather much better and the self centering design keeps the eyepieces in good collimation with no off-axis bias.
3. The bottom line is always the price and you will look long and far to find anything like this. Our price is at least $50 less that any of the competition.
Binoviewers such as these do not require the use of the barlows in order to come to focus with Schmidt cassegrains. The fact that we give you two barlows means that there is no need to purchase any additional eyepieces in order to get a variety of 3D-Like views!
Please also note that these binoviiewers have built-in individual eyepiece diopter correction to adjust for your particular vision.
The prisms are fully multicoated BAK-4 prisms. Every unit is tested for collimation prior to shipping and the overall quality of this viewer is excellent. What distinguishes these binoviewers from all the others is the use of self-centering eyepieces. There are no setscrews that will push the eyepiece off center collimation. Allow me to put it this way: due to the amount of glass the use of a binoviewer for astronomical purposes has its limitations. Having said that, however, the view of many, many objects in the night sky is absolutely devastating with the 3D effect it gives you! I personally use a binoviewer on a regular basis and I would hate to miss the view. Spending $100-200 on a binoviewer system is a very worthwhile investment. I am not so sure the same could be said of an investment that runs over $1000!
