    Default 20mm WO SWAN's

    It's took a while, but I've finally got a pair of 20mm eyepieces for my bino that aren't borkers and merge easily.

    A pair of William Optics 72º SWAN's. Before anyone says it, I know the bino's can't handle the whole 72º FOV. Apart from the fact I don't give the proverbial rodent's derriere, the main thing is that they're light and ergonomically pleasant to use.

    Daylight tests indicate they're pretty easy to merge and have nicely sized eye lenses.

    More importantly, they fit into the Elephant case. I will do a review if the clouds ever dissipate and I can see the Moon or planets. So, around the time Hell freezes over then.
    TS Optics: 150mm, f/6 Newtonian (GSO SVD series). Altair: Starwave 102ED-R. Sky-Watcher: SkyMax 102mm, SkyMax 127mm, Evostar 72ED DS Pro, Evostar 80ED DS Pro, ST80 (TS Focuser), ST102 (TS Focuser), EQ5 Deluxe, AZ5 Deluxe. Vixen: Porta II, SXG Hal-130. Orion: 90mm StarMax , ST80 (TS Focuser). Celestron: NexStar Evolution 9.25". William Optics: E-BINO-P Binoviewer. A shed load of eyepieces including: Antares, Astro Hutech, Baader, Bresser, BST, Bushnell, Celestron, Explore Scientific, GSO, Kokusai, Meade, Orion, Sky-Watcher, Solomark, SvBony, TeleVue, Vixen & one or two I'm not sure of.
