Special offer: Vixen binocular telescope BT-81S-A complete package!

October 9 2019, Stefan Taube

Binoculars are often underrated as instruments for astronomy. Yet the view of the night sky through large-aperture binoculars is a unique experience!

Binocular viewing supports our natural stereoscopic vision. It allows especially relaxed observing and offers a 3D effect that can only be achieved with a telescope by using a binocular viewer accessory.

Vixen BT 81S

Vixen BT-81S-A binocular telescope set

Compared to telescopes, binoculars have a larger field of view at lower levels of magnification. Therefore they are especially suited to observing star fields, open star clusters, dark nebulae and comets.

For many years Vixen, the Japanese manufacturer, has been offering an interesting range of astronomical binoculars with their BT series. Right now we are offering you the BT-81S-A as a complete package for a special price: you get the binoculars including a tripod, mount and eyepiece now for just EUR 1,699. You save EUR 200 compared to the manufacturer’s recommended price!

The BT-81S-A has two achromatic lenses with magnesium fluoride coatings. The colour-corrected fast lenses, with a focal ratio of f/6, combined with the special fork mount, allow an expansive visual stroll across the night sky which is truly addictive!

With an 81mm aperture, the BT-81S-A is among the smaller large-aperture binoculars. But in return it is easily portable, weighing 4 kilograms and being 480 millimetres long.

You can find more information and ordering options here in the Astroshop.

Swarovski Optik spotting scope promotion: Get a tripod head for free when you buy a 4-piece spotting scope package!

August 1 2019, Betty Lux

The purchase of a new ATX/ STX/ BTX spotting scope system is now particularly worthwhile. Because when you buy a 4-piece set of spotting scopes, you also get a tripod head for free. You can choose between the CTH compact tripod head or the PTH professional tripod head.

Swarovski Optik spotting scope promotion

This is how it works:

First choose your spotting scope set consisting of an objective lens and an eyepiece module. You can choose from the ATX-Series as well as the STX or BTX-Series. It doesn’t matter which model you prefer, the 65, 85 or 95.

The ATX/STX/BTX spotting scope series are a very good option for observers looking for a spotting scope that not only offers excellent image quality and maximum ease of use, but also maximum flexibility. As a result of the modular design, the objective modules and eyepiece modules can be combined with each other as needed and thus customised to the most wide-ranging requirements. We will be glad to assist you!

Swarovski Optik special offer package Spotting scope STX 30-70×95 with PCT tripod and BR Balance Rail + tripod head

Next, select your preferred Swarovski tripod, either the CCT compact carbon tripod or the PCT professional carbon tripod.

The leg segments of the Swarovski tripods are made of high-quality six-layer carbon fibre. The highest quality workmanship and the well thought-out design ensure stability when panning, turning and observing.

For accessories you can choose between the BR balance rail and the new VPA Variable Phone Adapter.

The BR balance rail matches perfectly with the ATX/STX/BTX series spotting scopes and can be individually adjusted. Two support points ensure a stable equilibrium and perfect stability.

Perfect for digi-scopers: with the VPA Variable Phone Adapter, your smartphone can connect to the Swarovski Optik spotting scope in no time at all to capture your unique observations.

Once you have chosen four components, Swarovski will send you the matching tripod head for free! Not only can you own a perfectly-matched complete package, you can also save money! When ordering, please indicate in the comment field which tripod head you have chosen.

The Swarovski tripod heads have been specially developed for extended observing. The integrated fluid bearing ensures smooth movements without tilting forwards or backwards thanks to the Counter Balance System.

Our example of a possible combination would be the spotting scope STX 30-70×95 with PCT tripod and BR Balance Rail. With this we would recommend the PTH tripod head, which completes your package.

Special Offer! The SUNocular 8×32 from Lunt

February 12 2019, Stefan Taube

Imagine a solar telescope that is just as manageable as a pair of binoculars, or a pair of binoculars that can be used to observe the sun as safely as if using a regular solar telescope. The SUNocular 8×32 from Lunt is precisely that. This unusual instrument for observing the sun is currently available at a special price of 98 euros. You will get 121 euros off the recommended retail price!

Lunt Sunocular

Lunt Solar Systems solar binoculars 8×32 SUNocular OD5

 

The SUNocular 8×32 features a permanently installed lens filter with a neutral density of 5, as is typical for sun filters designed for visual observation and allowing you to safely look at the sun. Since the filter is permanently installed, the SUNocular 8×32 is not suitable for use as binoculars for terrestrial observations. In order to ensure that there is no confusion on this point, we have classified this product under the Solar Telescope rubric for the sake of simplicity.

The SUNocular 8×32 allows you to see the photosphere of the sun. This layer, approximately 500 kilometres thick, creates almost all of the sun’s radiation in the visual spectral range. The photosphere shows sun spots with an eleven-year activity cycle.  We are currently between two cycles, and for this reason there are very few spots to be seen. But that will soon change, and this instrument allows you to be very well prepared when the change comes. You can observe, at any time and from any location, new sun spots appear as well as their day-to-day development.

The SUNocular 8×32 has all the typical features of a pair of binoculars of this size: central focus, dioptre balance, extremely rotatable eyepieces, carry strap and a very sturdy bag. Furthermore, the rubberised housing provides excellent grip!

By the way… The SUNocular 8×32 is also suitable for observing planets as they cross in front of the sun (transits) and for watching solar eclipses!

SALE: The Hyperion Universal Mark IV zoom eyepiece at a special price!

December 12 2018, Stefan Taube

A zoom eyepiece is really practical: It combines several focal lengths that can be adjusted simply by rotating the body. So, you don’t need a whole eyepiece set, and don’t have to switch them out if you want to increase magnification. Unfortunately, zoom eyepieces do not attain the edge sharpness and field of vision of a fixed focal length lens.

With the  Hyperion Universal Mark IV zoom eyepiece by Baader Planetarium it’s a different matter! This tried and tested zoom eyepiece has been improved even further, and offers, for magnification factors with 24 to 8 mm focal lengths, a very good image and at the greatest magnification factor, a field of view of 68°. Unlike other zoom eyepieces, the field of view is not narrowed at greater magnification!

You can now purchase the Hyperion Universal Mark IV for just 220 euros. You save € 25 on the recommended retail price!

Hyperion Mark IV Zoomokular

In the set with the 2.25x Barlow lens you can now even save 27 euros!

The word universal in the name of the Hyperion Universal Mark IV aims to offer almost unlimited uses: Use the zoom eyepiece visually with a long focal length Dobson telescope to view the planets and planetary nebulae, or with a Bino viewer or with a spotting scope for bird and nature watching.

This zoom eyepiece is also very good for a-focal photography:

Hyperion Mark IV Zoomokular Anwendungsbeispiel

Many adapters are available for the wide range of uses of the Hyperion Universal Mark IV.

By the way: Until the end of January 2019, you can purchase Hyperion series eyepieces at a special price!
