WARNING:VERY LARGE PICTURES.

This is actually more a drinking party than a binoculars party, holds by enthusiacs at locations in the Yangtze River Delta region biannually.

This spring we have more than 30 people participating, and first time since 15 or so years I try to share in CN.

We have three real big binoculars here. The spotlight is the new Sky Rover 150ed binoculars on the U mount, other two DIY projects are the behemoth DKD 8 inch carbon fiber binoscpes on the AZEQ 6 and the 130 apo EMS binoscopes on the Vinten Vision 30. 

Other highlights including a DIY 70ed ep-changeable binos, SR 70 and 82, 25x100 Czech military, Nikon WX 10x50(SN 001), several Sard MK 43, and various other smaller ones.

The last 3 pics were taken after the Matsuyama 26mm from the SR 150ed.

We also tried Pentax XL 40, TV PO 35 and UF 30 on the 150ed. Most people were blown away by it.

Huge images! I'm limited to 500KB...confused1.gif

 

Sky rover 150 ed?? is that a rebranded APM 150 or vice versa?

 

Is the Televue 22mm Nagler a good match for these big bino's?

On my wish list is a APM 152mm f7.9 binocular telescope with silver coated EMS mirrors, with the 22mm Nagler ep field is 1.5 degree.

Interesting!

 

What is the small (30mm?) bino with red rings around its objectives?

What is the story with the Sky Rover 150 ED. So APM is not exclusive? Looks gorgeous.

These are for domestic market, you won't see them outside China.

Nagler 22 is great for most binoculars.

It is great to join the meeting and use the Sr150ed Bino for watching the sart sky.If I choose  only one telescope or binocular,it must be the SR150ED.

Amazing optics with solid frame build up, very impressive! Can not wait to see their domestic pricing compared to APM.

Very nice!

When's the next bino (drinking) party?

Would be great to enjoy milky way.

Nice excuse for me to leave Xiamen for the weekend.
