It's been a few years since I last owned a binoviewer. I have an optically superb SW 127 mak, which has provided wonderful mono views of the moon.
I've been spending a bit of time here on the binoviewers forum, and it made me recall the stunning views of the moon I enjoyed in past times. I decided the other week to go for it and purchased a new set of WO binoviewers. It was a set of WO that I last owned, and was very happy with their performance. My interest is lunar and planetary. I raised the required funds by selling off my eyepieces
I decided that I wanted a stable platform for the binoviewers, and purchased an adapter to convert the rear cell thread to std 2" SCT, onto which I have attached a Baader 2" Clicklock visual back. Diagonal wise, I have invested in a Altair Astro 2" prism diagonal with built in locking collar and with the needed 2 to 1.2" adapter to accept the binoviewer.
I am happy to used the supplied WO 20mm eyepieces for lower power views, but I wanted a nice pair of quality eyepieces for higher more critical viewing. After searching I came across what must have been the only pair of Fujiyama 12.5mm HD orthos available here in the UK! I think the smooth barrels will be a plus point. If for any reason I wish to share views with someone who struggles with the bino, I have the 20mm and 12.5mm for that purpose.
I'm eagerly awaiting their delivery possibly tomorrow.
So I am looking forward to enjoying those lovely lunar views again and it's all thanks to you guys!
