    Default Binoviewers Roundup ...



    Okay ... who all has them? ... what brand? ... what do you think of them?

    ... I just got my set ... William Optics ... we have nasty weather rolling through and have not had the chance to use them yet ... they did come with the focal adapter and a set of 20mm wide angle EPs ... they are smaller than I thought they would be (go figure) which makes perfect sense for weight purposes ...

    Hi Bill,

    A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to view through the William Optics binoviewers in an 8" SCT. Great views with the supplied 20mm eyepieces. Observing with a pair of 32mm Celestron Plossls was not as pleasing though.
