What would a bino with all these features cost???? Would these be practical?
Tell me more about the Herschel 400 book.....would owning it be practical?

Mount and tripod are extra. Optional set of EPs are available for $750.
I looked thru the Apogee RA 88 at the 2005 NEAF show last month.( Indoors only). Considering the price($695) I was fairly impress with the optical quality and ease of IPD/focus adjustment. I think it's a good way to try out the angled bino concept without spending $$$$ the first time out.

Guessing this was for me, I was just having some fun. More of a bino wish-list. Never know what'll become available in the future, though.

Not for a binocular project.
It's intended for use with larger scopes.
Ready to tackle the Herschel 400?
