Binoviewers have been at the bottom of my long list of astro goodies to buy, however this looks like quite a bargain and WO has a good reputation for quality. Still, I'd want to read a number of reviews before purchasing. I wonder how these are matched to different scopes (type of scope and focal length).

I've been agonizing over the decision to get a binoviewer. I didn't know whether it would work with my equipment, and most of all, I just didn't know whether I would like using them. I was reluctant to go for broke on an expensive set, and I tend to believe that buying cheap is a waste of time and money. When I saw the WO setup, however, I thought, how can I go wrong? Binoviewers with compression rings, case, barlow, and two reasonably good eyepieces for under $250.00, including sales tax and shipping! Yow! I ordered a set today! If they work out, I'll upgrade later, and if they don't, I'm not out a potload of money. It's a win-win situation! Life is good. 8)

I saw the specs Williams has posted, aperture listed at 20.2 instead of the 22 available on most models in the $200 price range. Any one have any idea how much difference 1.8 mm will make?
