The new Omegon Nightstar - outstanding large binoculars at a low price
With an objective diameter of 100mm, the Omegon Nightstar provides a very bright image and is perfect for observing the night sky. The new three-element design substantially improves image colour - it can therefore be ranked among the half-apochromats.
Now still more universally usable
Now with connectors for accepting 1.25” eyepieces, there is nothing standing in the way of using your own eyepieces. Due to the relatively short focal length of 560mm however, the magnification used should not exceed 100X. The binoculars come with two pairs of eyepieces already included, allowing you to select between magnifications of 20X or 40X. The use of separate 1.25" eyepieces now also allows the observer to use nebula filters for observing DSOs.
These large binoculars let you to observe the night sky in particular comfort because using both eyes is less strenuous and much more fun. The large objective diameter makes a rich variety of objects visible. Objects appear differently compared to the view through a telescope, they seem three-dimensional. In addition, there are two 100mm apertures providing more light gathering capacity than the single aperture of a 100mm telescope, with which one observes monocularly anyway. Open clusters, extended emission nebulas and other DSOs can all be well seen.
