Tele Vue/Vixen partnership

Did folks on this forum notice the news in the TeleVue forum that they are going to become a US distributor for Vixen? This has the potential to substantially change the US large binocular market somewhat. I'm hoping that they'll carry the entire Vixen line of binoculars, spotters and telescopes.

Yes! I have my eye on Vixen's #20 100BCF model. 5mm exit pupil, 21mm eye relief, and 100mm appature! Orion said they couldn't get it. I recently wrote to Vixen in Japan to inquire about a better way to distribute their products here in the US. I'm glad to learn on Astromart that TeleVue will be carrying Vixen's products. I hope to learn more next week at the telescope makers convention in Big Bear.

I recently spoke to the person in charge of Vixen N. America about getting the Vixen 125mm interchangeable eypiece binocular telescope. He told me at this time they don't plan on importing any of the Vixen Binoculars. He said that you might be able to special order them from various dealers who would special order from Vixen Japan. He said that unless theres a big demand it won't be somthing they will stock here in the U.S.
