Skywatcher bino-viewers - observing with both eyes
Skywatcher bino-viewers make almost 3D observing possible. Using both eyes means that an observer experiences a much heightened spatial feeling, as compared with observing through a telescope using only one eye.
You will see the bright planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars with completely new eyes. And, with two eyes, you will feel almost as if you are floating over the craters of the Moon. These are the type of amazing experiences that only binocular viewing can provide.
With their adapted 1.25" barrel, Skywatcher bino-viewers will fit into any standard telescope. The interpupillary distance is adjustable between 55mm and 75mm, so almost any young people or adults can use these bino-viewers. The BAK-4 prisms are multi-coated on their optical surfaces, reducing reflections to a minimum.
The unit has room for inserting two 1.25" eyepieces. The eyepieces are held in place by compression ring which keeps them securely in place without scratching them.
The advantages in a nutshell:
- bino-viewer for 1.25" eyepieces
- 1.25" barrel with filter thread
- multi-coated BAK-4 prisms
- interpupillary distance adjustable between 55mm and 75mm
- 2X glass path corrector
- compression ring for 1.25" eyepieces
- aluminium transport case
A bino-viewer has the advantage of being able to observe with both eyes. However, these instruments are mainly designed for observing brighter objects such as planets, the Moon and bright deep-sky objects.
Very faint objects should still be observed using just one eye. But bright objects do appear particularly fascinating in bino-viewers.
