delivery start in januar 2014, pre-orders accept now.

this binocular is made for very high power use. It is user friendly for collimating your eyes up to above 100 power.
this binocular is a true Apo with no color and high quality spherical correction.

It is splitting double stars and showing details on planets like a real 4" doublet ED Apo, but the light gathering in this binocular is higher due 2 x 100 mm aperture and thanks to a outstanding high quality newest technology broadband multicoating.

It is accept standart 1.25" eyepieces with nebulae filters screwed in , like Tele Vue Panoptic 24 mm, Tele Vue Naglers etc.

In my new living location on north -east german coast the sky is now very darf, this new 100 mm real APO Binocular show Veil ( both parts) and north america nebulae such clear, as I have seen in 4" scopes only with UHC Filter installed.

The sharpness with Panoptics is pin point to the edge of the view and the contrast rock's+
