My Decision and Thank You

Hello All,

I recently ordered the Hutech/Astromeccanica Borg 100ED binoscope. I wish to thank Markus Ludes, Erik Lin, David Minnick, George Page, Ed Zarenski, Daryl Crowley, Mike Swaim, Larry Patriarca, and Davide Del Vento for your many insights during my 6 months of research. Davide, I'm sure, will be particularly impressed with my choice .

In the end I felt that this approach would provide the best balance of parameters that were important to me in an astronomical binocular. Since I already own one 24mm Panoptic, that will be my first EP pair, yielding 26.5x & 2.5deg.

I am assuming that this forum is meant to include binoscopes as well as binoculars, so I can pass along any surprises on this product, either good or bad... My mount and all eyepieces will be purchased from Astromart sponsors.

When you see the clouds gather over Arizona, you will know it's arrived :-)

Thanks again and Clear Skies,
