Hello all!

I'm seriously considering getting a BinoViewer for Christmas... and would like to ask you Bino GURUS what accessories/eyepieces would be a MUST HAVE...

I don't have a Millionaire's Budget, so please be gentle...

I'm still debating on what brand BINO to get (not $1000 ones!), but I know there are several pieces that go with them, besides the eyepieces...

I enjoy looking at DSO's, but also planets, so I was thinking about getting TWO sets of eyepieces, one for wide FOV and one for planetary viewing... (like 30mm Ultimas & 12.5mm Ultimas)



I would really appreciate any recommendations,



Clear skies to all!

Ivan,

I think the Black night binoviewers are the best buy on the market.

Since you are going to be using them on an SCT you do not need anything additional to achieve focus.

You can get the binoviewers with a case and a pair of nice 21mm SWA EPs for just $388. The black Nights are so light you will not have to worry about throwing your balance out too much.
